Op-Ed: The neglect of younger voters is a lost opportunity for political parties

The political parties in Australia are failing to reach out to the younger generation, and this is an issue that should concern everyone.

Whether you’re a young person yourself, or you know someone who is, the age of Australia’s voters is set to decline in the next generation and this is a big, potentially life changing, factor that will be reflected in the electoral results in the next federal election.

Second, this is the year that people are going to make up their mind about the future of the next generation.

It will be interesting to see whether or not this election will be seen as a referendum on the Liberal party or the Labor party in particular.

While I don’t believe that the next generation will come out to vote, will
