  • I want to cover the main points of my paper in this presentationAnd also make this more of a discussion about some of the issues and limitations that I came across.Because I think this topic is really fascinating, but there is a ton of research out there on voting behavior, young voters, and the internet but it also seems like it’s impossible to get a straight answer sometimes.
