The college vote

I’ve worked in a university setting for many years and noticed a distinct increase in excitement in my students today.  The vast majority had already voted, based on the number of “I Voted” stickers, and wanted to talk about their experiences.  Teaching during the day, most of my students are traditional college students – this may have been their first presidential election, and they were completely into the whole process.  How they voted, I don’t know, but they did exercise their constitutional right, and I hope their enthusiasm continues into the future.

    So, do you think this represents a higher “youth vote” turn-out?

    I would say yes, at least for the small demographic I observed. Does that translate into a higher overall turn-out? Can’t say.
