Respond to a High School Essay

Write an essay (at least 250 words) and tell me why you think people closest to your age group (18-24) have the worst record in voting of any age group.  State your position (the reason why you think 18-24 year olds vote less than other age groups), and support it with evidence, examples and reasons.  You will need to do some research to find evidence, but you should also think about it yourself, and use your experiences to help understand this issue.
