I heard from at least two different sources that despite the surge of young (18-24 year old) voters who registered this year, they showed up to the polls in no greater numbers than usual. They let us down and now when they're our age, they're going to deal with the aftermath of what happens in the next four years. They know he's evil and they know that he's bad for them. But now that he'll be off the leash without worrying about re-election, we're going to see conservative values crush our rights in ways and numbers of which we never could have dreamed.

the 18-24 demographic was once again only 10% of the total electorate, same as in 2000. the total amount of people voting increased, so they only kept pace.

How can any of this be possible? I can't make it compute.

Have the riots started yet? And why is Kerry being such a penis! All the votes haven't even been counted yet.

Don't worry--the draft's gonna thin their numbers real good. Joke's on them!

Last night on Air America, Chuck D. gave a report that regardless of how many youngsters turned out to vote when they actually got to the polls they turned around because of the fucking 6 hour wait!!!! What 18-21 yr. old is going to wait in line for that long??

It's about re-educating youth not just about registering and voting, but damnit, absentee ballots!!!
