Non-voting Spartans explain why they stayed home on Election Day

In any election cycle, there are two groups of people playing the biggest part in the outcome:  candidates and voters. Without voters, candidates would be campaigning to no one in particular, and without candidates, voters would be unable to select someone to run their country that they feel closely represents their values. However, this means a significant amount of the population is left behind. Non-voters, according to the Bipartisan Policy Center, make up 42.5 percent of the eligible voting population. But they are often dismissed as irresponsible or unpatriotic, when their reasons for staying away from the polls are as diverse as their opinions.
