Youth Voting in an Interent Caucus

Just in case any of my students read this blog! :<)

I am officially too old!

Tonight in Iowa, Democrats and Republicans will start picking their nominees for President. But this election affects us all—we shouldn’t let Iowans have all the fun.

That’s why we’re helping the League of Young Voters launch their online youth primary today on Facebook. Nationwide, anyone under 35 can log on, vote for their favorite candidate, and see how others at their school or in their city are voting.

You can vote here:

Young people are more engaged in this election than ever before, but the media and the pundits still pay little attention to this critical emerging block of voters. By drawing attention to the voting power of younger people, we can help change all that.
