Youth vote. A waste?

Ofcourse you guys are the exception (lol). Everyone else..they don't even know an election's going on. If you tell them, they got "better" things to do. Then they cry about things being against them.

My wackjob governor, Rick Perry, was all for tuition hikes. Some colleges raised 4 times. Yet,Texas has one of the worst turnouts at 17%.

"Younger voters were among the Democrats’ strongest supporters in 2008, and they have the highest approval ratings of the president. But in the last two midterm elections, only one in four people under age 30 voted, about half the rate for recent presidential elections. And, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center in September, young Democrats are currently even less engaged than they were in 2006."
