I am an Uncle of three 18 to 25 year olds who told me about the complications of why they don't vote.
Over the past six years, many obstacles have impeded college students’ voices to be heard. Students have the right to register and vote in their college towns if they consider it their primary residence via a federal appeals court decision in Symm v. U.S. Yet, access to the voting booth has become complicated due to intentional and unintentional misinformation, like previously asserted claims that registering to vote at school may jeopardize your eligibility for financial aid.
With the high number of college student voters and the amount of false information, colleges and universities need to help facilitate voting. In addition, young people overall face increasing challenges to vote, including harsher voter registration rules, a lack of college campus voting booths, and new voter ID laws. This brief will examine existing voting laws, specific challenges facing young people, and recommendations for action.
Also a lot of these young people at colleges have to go to school full time and then after school more qthan 50% of these students have to work part time jobs, so when do they actually have time to go and vote during election day? One way to fix that is to give every student that day off as a national holiday. Another way to combat this is letting Voting stations to be allowed on college campusus. Most Colleges will not allow voting stations on campus....hmmmmm, why is that? it is because the republican party does not want that to happen. Upon posting this does that mean I hate the republican Party!?!... No, I don't hate them, I actually respect their opinions, do I agree with them!?!..no I don't.
Also in venting I want to point out what the word bigot actually means, most people think a bigot is only racist and that is not true. A bigot is someone who doesn't tolerate people of different races or religions or political beliefs and a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his or her own.
