Voting Young

One of the major parts of my Writing for Convergent Media class in the spring 2012 semester was a class project on first-time voters in the 2012 election. The entire class participated in the project, Voting Young.

These are the two stories I worked on:

Social media’s role shifts in 2012 elections
How first-time voters and candidates are following, reblogging, retweeting and liking their way to the polls.
A Storify on social media’s role and how first-time voters are using political social media. 

Student activist energizes a new generation of voters
American University student Noah Gray hits the road with the Virgin Voting Project.
A video with Noah Gray about his big plans for The Virgin Voting Project and how he plans to mobilize young people to vote in the upcoming election.
