The Youth Vote Matters in Iowa, So Will They Actually Vote?
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A new study released Friday by NBC News shows that just a third of millennials plan to vote on Tuesday’s election. Nextgen Iowa, a group encouraging youth to vote across the state, says if one third of millennials head to the poll it’s a win. “What I think is so funny is that they say that in such a negative way but I actually think that's such a positive thing, because youth turnout in previous years, especially in midterm elections has actually been way, way lower than that” said Nextgen Iowa’s Youth Director Haley Hager.
