The North Texas Commission’s Topic: North Texas Webinar Series presented by Verizon continued on October 14, 2015 with the NTC’s Britton Cunningham, as she discussed voter apathy in Texas and nationally.
Statistics show that the Presidential election years drive abnormally high numbers to the polls. In off years, and especially in local elections, like the ones held in May, rather than November, here in Texas, voter turnout can be low.
In this month’s Topic: North Texas webinar, Britton discusses WHY voter apathy, or the feeling of not needing to vote, exists, and covers key insights including:
Deep-dive into the millennial generation
Compare and contrast various demographics
Dissect voting trends in Texas and the U.S.
Discuss opportunities for engagement
