The question of “how to talk to young voters” is not that different than how to talk to voters in general: talk to them about your plans to tackle the issues they care about, what you’ll do for them and their communities if elected, and ask for their votes.
However, young adults do view issues, politics, and life a little differently than their parents. here are some tips for how to relate:
