    I always find it sad that the youth turnout is so low considering how new the right of 18, 19, and 20 year-olds to vote really is.

    I also find it strange that all men, when they turn 18, have to sign up for Selective Service (which the government will never use) but not for voter registration.

    Personally, I would love to see the mandatory voting that many other countries have instituted here in the U.S.  Or at least automatic/universal registration.
