Voting in the 2016 Election

Check any form of social media and one thing is very clear, the 2016 Presidential Elections caused much confusion and stress for Americans, regardless of political party. But one thing that isn’t clear, why did so many Americans choose not to vote for their next President?

According to The Washington Post:

“But when it came time for Americans to vote in their own, similarly historic, election, it appears that around one in two eligible voters simply didn’t turn up. While the final tally is still being counted, one estimate from the United States Election Project (USEP) suggested that turnout on Tuesday was around 56.9 percent, slightly down from 58.6 percent in 2012.”

For this month, instead of giving my own opinion, I want to recommend my fellow Millennial Blogger, Jacob Deleon Navarrete.
