In Canada and apperetly the US too there is an increasing problem with younger people not voting. What do you think the problem is?

All politicians lie and do what ever they want anyway, so it doesn't matter who votes or not.

Sometimes it seems that way.

In the USA, I would suspect that it has something to do with the 18-25 year-old voting block has grown up with George W. Bush, Enron, Halliburton, and Big Oil all engaged in their bedroom politics in a more ostentatious fashion than those of us slightly older than said group are used to, which in turn I suspect leads to a certain amount of disenchantment--they're going to do what they want anyway.

Could just be the decline and fall of the empire, too. I wouldn't write that off.

Washington State is an all-mail state. We begun to receive our ballots and people will begin to vote right away. It is going to be interesting to see who benefits from this early voting.
