Write an essay (at least 250 words) and tell me why you
think people closest to your age group (18-24) have the worst record in voting
of any age group. State your position
(the reason why you think 18-24 year olds vote less than other age groups), and
support it with evidence, examples and reasons.
You will need to do some research to find evidence, but you should also
think about it yourself, and use your experiences to help understand this
Introduction (one paragraph)

that helps support your position. Be sure to document your sources.
Evidence or examples (one paragraph)

your own observations or research, that help support your position. Be sure
to document your source.

disprove your position, and why your position is still correct in spite of this.
Be sure to document your sources.
Conclusion (one paragraph)
Sum up your argument, and suggest at least one thing that could
