Did younger voters go to the polls?


Daniel Villarreal

The younger you are, the more likely it is that you didn't vote in the primary. However, the number of young voters can still grow this year.

On today's show, we'll cover younger voting patterns and trends, why young adults are choosing not to vote, and what to expect for the general election turnout.

We'll also focus on where young people get their civic education, as many high school and college students are uninformed and unprepared to vote.
