For years, political scientists have told their students that it doesn't make a difference whether they vote because one vote won't make a difference. This book is antidote to that argument. -- Richard Niemi, University of Rochester Marty Wattenberg's new book is a brilliant analysis of a big and growing problem in modern democracies; it is also an urgently needed wake-up call. How can we call ourselves a democracy if fewer and fewer people participate in elections and, in addition, if these voters are far from representative of the whole population? The author's recommendations for remedial action, including the adoption of mandatory voting, deserve the most serious consideration. - Arend Lijphart, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of California -- San Diego This text is likely to become one of the seminal works on voting -- readers of all levels cannot help but be impressed by the clarity and strength of Wattenberg's answer to why young people do not vote, and his solution will spur debate about the meanings of democracy, rights, and responsibilities. - Sean Matheson, KnoxCollege This is first-rate scholarship. and integrates competing theories in an accessible manner.

Wattenberg's marvelous new book. Today's young adults are not like yesterday's.
