Abstract
  • It is often noted that young adults tend to be apathetic towards involvement in the political process. The aim of this study is to scratch the surface of this phenomena and, in a scientific fashion, begin to discover if this can be changed. In the study, press releases from members of the House of Representatives are analyzed and the topics of these press releases (Environmental Issues, Education, and Social Justice) are compared to the turnout of young, Millennial voters. Using computer software (Excel, R, and Stata) and a regression analysis it was determined that voters age 18 – 38 see an increase in voter turnout the more a representative speaks about Environmental Issues. The same is true for 18 year old voters and Education. Key Words: voting, Political Science, Millennials, elections, environment, education, social justice
