About this product
- DescriptionIn 2008, everyone expected young people to turn out to vote in record numbers for the first youthful, hip, new media-savvy, African American presidential candidate in history. They didn't. When Obama ran for re-election, he targeted young voters and they still didn't come to the polls in overwhelming numbers. What will happen in 2016, ather potential history-making election? Is Voting for Young People? explores the reasons why young people are less likely to follow politics and vote in the United States (as well as in many other established democracies) matter who the candidates are, whether they tweet or blog, or what the issues may be. This brief, accessible, and provocative book suggests ways of changing that, and w includes a new chapter on young people's role in the 2008, 2012, and 2014 elections, looking ahead to 2016. New to the Fourth Edition: * A new introduction placing current youth voting trends in context with recent elections. * A new Chapter 8 covering the elections of 2008, 2012, and 2014-looking ahead to 2016. * Updated voting data on 2012 and 2014 elections. * A new concluding chapter offering recommendations for improving young voter turut.
