“The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years or older, to vote shall not be
denied or abridged...” --26TH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION, 1971

"Can't be bothered to vote," says an 18-year-old. She's not alone. Voter turnout among 18-24
year-olds was only about one out of four young citizens in the last presidential election.
Not only are young people not voting, they're not getting involved in politics either. They don't
volunteer for campaigns and very few run for elected office.

Voter turnout across all ages has been declining. The United States now has on average the
lowest voter turnout in the world (among mature democracies). Voter apathy is creeping up
slowly. Some call it "political depression" and it begs the question: If people don't participate, at
what point does a democracy cease to be democratic?
