The Importance of College Voters in 2016

With several big colleges and universities in southwest Virginia, the student vote could play a big role.

Historically, college aged students and young adults have had a huge influence on the outcome of races, when they actually care about the candidates. 

The problem comes when the young people feel like the candidates are not speaking to their specific interests and wants, and they tend to lose interest altogether.

Associate professor in the School of Communication at Radford, Scott Dunn, says it’s not hard for students to get interested, they just have to try.
