The Youth Vote: What election issues will influence it?

Over the last month, we’ve seen political parties rallying to garner the elusive “youth vote” through songs, ambitious promises and social media. But who are these young voters and what issues will drive them to the polls? We talk to young voters across the country to see whether their demands from the next government go beyond the unemployment vs national security debate. Featuring interviews with psephologists like Sanjay Kumar (Director, CSDS) and the popular political Youtube personality Dhruv Rathee, this episode dives into anxieties of the youth.
