According to Project Vote, an advocacy group in Washington, D.C., 18 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds lack a form of ID that would allow them to vote in these states.With effective instruction—and some positive peer pressure—voting can become a core civic duty, both relevant and cool.In-school voter education is especially effective when paired with the removal of institutional barriers to voter registration.
In some locales, political races may be so uncompetitive that voters see no reason to show up, or they consider the candidates or issues demotivating.
In schools, students can learn about power politics and the role it plays in representative democracy.
Educators can also create forums for exploring issues that directly affect students and their families, including discussions about where those issues intersect with electoral decisions.
Still, the biggest barrier may lie within young people themselves.
For some, the issue may be ignorance and uncertainty about the registration and voting process.
In 2012, for example, only 41 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds voted, compared to 65 percent in the 25-and-over group.
