Politics isn’t always the easiest subject to discuss, but in this podcast, we discuss the upcoming election and its importance for young people. It will be the first election in which many young people are voting and participating in the campaign process.

Not to be taken for granted is the importance of primary elections, and the role social media plays during political campaigns. In order to make an informed decision, voters—especially young voters—need to be informed and educated about the candidates and what they represent. However, finding reliable news seems to be difficult nowadays.

The polls are unpredictable, as they seem to change on a daily basis. While the polls remain close, everyone is patiently anticipating the results of the race as November approaches.
