The Diaries of Young Voters
The 2008 Presidential election was monumental—and not
only because of the electing of America’s first black president; the
campaign itself was monumental in regards to the tremendous response
from the young voter. According to an NBC News study, registered voters
ages 18-29 significantly increased in all 50 states, and young people
overwhelmingly cast their ballots for Barack Obama. This same
generation was also 57% percent of the voters who elected Obama the
Democratic presidential nominee. Rolling Out
visited the campus of Howard University during Neyo and the Compound
Foundation’s Bowl- 4- Change charity event and asked students there to
share their memories of Election 2008. kim smith
