Almost like a broken record close to every election, we start to hear a similar question being repeated.

How do we get young people to vote? Why aren't the voting? Will we see a youthquake this election?

The statistics for youth voting in general elections are low but you don't even want to start on local body elections. As an entire population, we struggle to get enough people voting for our councils, DHBs, and other local governments.

With few young people voting we see is a gross under-representation of youth around the decision-making table.
