I have a good liberal friend who needed a ride to vote yesterday. He was sleepy and didn't want to vote, but I insisted he vote. I offered to drive him to his precinct since his sister had his car.
I didn't care that he was voting for Kerry. The point is that if you're 18 to 24, register and then VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!! Get involved in the political process.
Fewer than one in 10 voters yesterday were 18 to 24 (source: USA Today) -- that is sad. Less than 10 percent turnout for that age group.
If the Democratic Party wants to become relevent again, it needs to do better at attracting young people to register to vote. That is, attracting them, not using false scaremongering tactics, i.e., the draft, to frighten them (which only subsequently pisses them off, after they find it was 2 DEMOCRATS who wanted to bring the draft back, not Republicans).
