I'm still bitter that my eighteenth birthday comes three months after the election is over, but eh, that means more excitement for next time. Razzer

I can't vote till next election either! However, I still encourage my friends and family (who are adults) to vote! People don't realize what a privilege it is to do so!

It's called voter apathy. And unfortunately, with our electoral college system, I think it hurt even more after the events of 2000. Look at this:

Now that article is from 1999 so hopefully things have changed....I know that whole Rock The Vote thing was seen as cornball.....but if that age group mobilized they could be significant.

People here often ask, why is there a new senior center and no teen center. Well guess who votes?
