As Election Day Looms, Could Idaho's Youth Change The State Of Play?
We’re just hours away from election day 2020. One big question that will be answered once the votes are tallied: could 2020 be the year when young voters break turnout records, and possibly swing the election one way or another?
Our Morning Edition host George Prentice spoke with two people working to get out the vote on Idaho college campuses. Cheyon Sheen is a student and the Government Relations Officers for the Associated Students at Boise State University, and Amber Schneider is the Program Coordinator at the Center for Volunteerism and Social Action at the University of Idaho.
Then, we hear from two Idaho teenagers voting for the first time in 2020: Esther David who is 19 and 18-year-old David Tibesar.
