    From their keyboards. Getting them to stand up and walk is no mean feat.

    A superior and enlightened group such as the millenials should not be expected to exert unnecessary physical effort.

    This piece is complete garbage. It's a personal opinion. Studies, actual surveys, show that millennials are way more *communal* and supportive of community action than most older generations. (My generation is the alienated invidualistic one!)

    First of all, younger people always vote less than older people; dunno why but it's been true for over 200 years.

    Secondly, voting rates drop when people don't perceive a real choice (gerrymandered districts, Tweedledum/Tweedledee candidates).

    Thirdly, there has been an active effort to suppress voting. Although companies are legally required to give workers time off to vote, they often don't; this is well-documented. Voting day needs to be a national holiday.
