College students don't vote. Whose fault is it? Is it because they're lazy? Or, perhaps, are there barriers preventing from showing up at the poll booths? If so, what are they?

We bring on college experts Theresa Kouo, Assistant Director for Civic Engagement Education at the Washington University in St. Louis and Purvi Patel, Director of Civic and Campus Engagement at The University of Chicago to dive into these questions. Alongside personal histories of political engagement, they share what they've been doing virtually to make sure the youth vote is accounted for in November 2020.

See Purvi’s Forbes article "3 Lessons We Learned Engaging Student Voters in the Age of Social Distancing": https://www.forbes.com/sites/civicnation/2020/06/16/3-lessons-we-learned-engaging-student-voters-in-the-age-of-social-distancing/#6996fe68742f
