The Drop: Why Young People Don't Vote

Former MP, Ian Waddell has co-produced a documentary film The DROP, Why Young People Don’t Vote”.  It examines why many young people don’t vote and gives suggestions to how we might change this.  It is made by young people for young people.  Ian acknowledges the help of some former parliamentarians, including the Hon. Sue Barnes, John Parry and the Hon. Raymond Setlakwe.  You might want to watch it – hopefully with some young people. 

Why don't young people vote? Is it because of apathy or cynicism? 22-year-old Dylan Playfair sets out on a road trip across North America to find out why his generation isn't turning up at the polls.
