The old adage of "young people don't vote" is becoming less and less true. Turnout for 18-29 year olds in 2006 increased 3 percentage points from 2002, tripling the increase in the rest of the population. Turnout for 18-24 year olds increased 11 percentage points from 2000 to 2004, again tripling the increase in the rest of the population. This blog is dedicated to the politics of youth in Missouri. Someone's got to do it, and that someone is me.
Please contact me with any comments, questions or tips at YoungMOPolitico@gmail.com.
I want to recognize candidates who I've requested short interviews with, who have responded to my questions. Please support candidates who support young people.
