Young voter participation has been on the rise. But at the same time we are now seeing a concerted state-by-state effort to construct new barriers and even reverse existing laws that created greater access.
Coulter seems to suggest the voting age should be raised to 26 because young Americans don't have property, spouses, children, jobs or pay taxes. I may not yet have a spouse or children, but, come to think of it, neither does Ms. Coulter.
The shortfall in young voter turnout is a result of what happens when campaigns fail to engage young people. It's like throwing a dinner party, not inviting someone to come, and then getting mad when they don't show up.
