Voter turnout in Switzerland – a lull in voting? That’s why young people go to the polls less - Lucas Leemann

Young people are less likely to go to the polls. Why is that? A political scientist provides answers.

The national elections will take place in just under a week. Statistics from the elections four years ago showed that voter turnout was particularly low among young people (18-24 year olds and 25-34 year olds). But young people are not inactive in politics, says political scientist Lucas Leemann.
