‘Don’t vote you’re an Idiot’ is a short documentary about the importance of voting and the lack of voting amongst the 18-25 year old demographic. The problem was highlighted when I spoke to people within the demographic and found there was a severe disinterest in voting and politics in general. This was supported by statistics: 44% of 18-25 year olds voted in the 2010 elections.
Why are 18-25 year olds disengaged and what can be done to improve the situation? Watch below to find out.
