On today's episode, we address the elephant in the room: why some people choose not to vote. We examine the problems with the "vote or don't complain" mentality, and learn how a few community organizers work to energize voters through public outreach and education. We also discuss some of the unique ways college students are disenfranchised.
Today's guests include:
Alex Boutros, Organizing Manager with Chicago Votes.
Jen Dean, Deputy Director with Chicago Votes.
D. M., new voter in Kansas City, Missouri.
Bridget Junker, new voter in Muncie, Indiana.
