Why Nonvoters choose to opt out (2020-03-25)

On the Media has a fascinating interview with Eitan Hersh, associate professor of political science at Tufts. The interviewer asks excellent questions and Hersh provides a plethora of data about voters and nonvoters drawn from years of research. If you’re like me and like actual data in such discussions, then this is for you.

Why Nonvoters Choose to Opt Out
On the Media

TL;DR

Hersh has no simple, single answer to why some people don’t vote, but Hersh has a message to all Gen Zers and Millennials who don’t plan to vote. If you don’t want to listen to the whole 14m22 of the interview, go directly to 10m59 and listen to what he found when more people vote. Voting does make a difference and you and I will like that difference.
