Mid-term elections historically have lower voter turnout than presidential election years but, this November 6th is expected to be different.
Polls show this upcoming election is expected to have one of the highest voter turnout from young adults in decades.
Meridian Township clerk, Brett Dreyfus, says one of the reasons is the candidates they were left to vote for in the November 2016 election.
“Young people felt disenfranchised,” Dreyfus said. “Whether other people agree with that or not, young people were very dissatisfied with the choices presented to them during the November 2016 election.”
Clerk Dreyfus thinks social media also plays a part.
Dreyfus reminds voters they can make a change, all they have to do is vote.
