But then something great happened. Joelle Kovach arrived from the Peterborough Examiner to talk with us, and discuss reasons for the ever growing gap in student voting. You can read part of our discussion here: http://www.thepeterboroughexaminer.com/2015/09/25/effort-made-to-get-out-the-student-vote-after-turnout-for-voters-aged-18-to-24-in-the-2011-federal-election-was-just-388
In a strange way our panel was in the end successful. Athough our panel lost the opportunity to talk directly to students, we gained the opportunity to talk to local media about the challenges to student voters.
What can you do to get the word out?
