Political Checklist: What’s Driving Young Voters?

What drives young voters to the polls? And how is each presidential candidate looking to harness their energy? I asked Judy Woodruff that question in this week’s Political Checklist.

Judy has a piece on the NewsHour Wednesday night exploring the youth vote, and we chatted about why she decided to focus on this group.

Doing her reporting in battleground Ohio, Judy noticed a lot of younger voters are turned off from politics, and feel the candidates aren’t representing their efforts.
