Chelsea Clinton Weighs In On Why You Should Vote (VIDEO)

Chelsea Clinton is urging young people to vote in a new video for OurTime.org.

"Young people have always felt like their voices haven't been heard," Clinton says in the video.

Clinton says it's a "crisis" that this generation of young voters "is on track to earn less than their parents did." She also urges youth to consider "the different ways in which the government impacts your life" when voting, touching on issues like health care and education.

"Why on earth would you not vote? Particularly now when it's ever easier to figure out who the candidates are and where they stand on any given issue?"
