Here in the US, we have a voting problem. According to USA Today, Millennials make up 1/3 of eligible voters, but only half of eligible voters vote. Why is that?
With absentee ballots at our disposal, it's almost TOO easy to go out and vote (not to mention the fact that it's our civic duty).
With the general election coming up in November, we wanted to find out why people our age are just not voting.
However, we knew we couldn't do it alone, so we brought in a few "political experts."
And we know it's possible to get random people to listen.
We've all been there: You're walking down the street, trying to dodge those non-profit canvassers when suddenly, you're donating $200 to save the whales.
Everyone's a tough guy until animalistic instincts kick in and a gorgeous, blue-eyed hipster is getting you to sign on the dotted line.
Sure, you can chalk it up to your miscellaneous spending category, but you still got duped.
They say a pretty face can only get you so far, but we beg to differ.
Real talk: Our generation is the future, so it only makes sense that we should be helping to decide it, right?
Young voters are more likely to support social issues, such as legalizing same-sex marriage, legalizing marijuana, supporting a pathway to citizenship for immigrants and the right to women's reproductive healthcare, than other generations.
Let's NOT repeat elections like the one in 2012, in which only 45 percent of people age 18 to 29 voted, but 66 percent of people over 30 voted.
As a result, their interests were more highly represented.
Are we really going to let our voices be silenced just because we're too lazy to walk over to our voting sites?
This is the time when the “me, me, ME” attitude people hate Millennials for could come in handy.
Think about YOU this election, and make sure YOUR voice is heard.
