The Youth Vote
2004-11-03 03:43:37 ET

I didn't vote for Bush and I didn't vote for Kerry. I dislike both of them. Thus, however this election may turn out (and it looks like Bush is winning) I'll just be sitting here, watching with an amused smirk.

The reason I'm posting is I see a lot of people wondering what had happened to the youth vote. While I have no answer for that I will remind people of the following:

The 26th Amendment to the Constitution (changing the minimum voting age from 21 to 18) was formally certified in 1971.

In 1972 Nixon was re-elected.
