Why Young People Should Vote

Young people should vote because they make half the population of the country, yet older Americans are more likely to vote. Young people should have a voice because voting allows them to shape their own future. If you don’t vote when you can, it is more likely that you will not vote in the future. In addition, young people should vote because elected people are more likely to address the problems of young adults if they see a higher percentage of votes from them. That is why young adults should vote.
