    nice done! I have never thought that rural youth is mor econscious than urban! this fact is really sorprising for me… is there any reasonble explanation for this fact? Think it’s worth thinking about!

  2. Jonas Says:

    yeah! I didn’t know it either.There is a such big difference in voter turnout level between adults and youth. Moreover I couldn’t imagine that the rural population is more concious than the urban.

  3. John Revitol Says:

    It doesn’t really surprise me that rural youth turned out to vote in larger numbers than urban. There’s more trouble and more crime in urban areas and people like that don’t vote. Just my simplistic way of looking at it.

    This voter turnout data shows that there are some real issues when it comes to ensuring that all eligible voters are involved in the political process. How did this change in the most recent election?

    This begs the question: What info should your website contain that will
    bring people back frequently and regularly to your site?
    For a sports site, it used to be things like realtime scores.
    Now that you can get that info without clicking away from google,
    it bears some reconsideration.
