We so often see large and vocal support for candidates at colleges and universities, but when it comes time to vote, young people, myself included, don't show up at the poll. What are the reasons for the disconnect between the ardent support for issues or candidates and voting? Could candidates discuss topics or are there issues that would increase voter turnout by young people? Do you feel there are changes that could be made by governments to increase young voter participation? Do you just not vote because you don't know when or where to vote, or it is too inconvienent or too difficult to get absentee ballots while at college?
