Young Voters and the Web of Politics: Best Practices

Candidate Sites

Our general findings suggested that candidate websites used the interactive capabilities of the web less often than sites in the youth engagement web sphere, and that candidates rarely included direct or indirect appeals to younger voters in their websites.

Many candidate sites, however, provided excellent examples of these techniques, which we believe are an important part of tapping the full potential of the internet as an entryway into electoral politics for American youth.
