Youth not interested in voting in municipal elections

A survey has revealed that 70 percent of young people feel there are no good reasons to vote in the upcoming municipal elections. The Research Surveys study found that while three-quarters of adults across all race and language groups felt there are many good reasons to vote, 18 to 24 year-olds mostly disagree. The study was based on face to face interviews with 200 people in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, East London, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein. The survey suggests that voter turnout could be as low as 41 percent, compared to the average of 48 percent in the last two local elections.
