Young non-voters

I learned this morning that the percentage of young people in the United States between the ages of 18 and 29 who actually vote is just 16 percent — yes, that’s not a typo — just 16 percent of them go to the polls. I have no idea which way the country would swing if they all voted but I think that I do know that we are not a functioning democracy without their vote.
