Send us a comment below.The CBC's Adam Walsh asked student leaders about young voters' attitudes and what they were doing to get the vote out.
'They [the NDP] have a candidate who is 18-years-old. I'm the youngest in the province ... They didn't pick me on my age solely, but that's really going to show youth that they can have a voice either by their voting or by running themselves.'— NDP candidate Noah Davis Power
'If we don't get youth out to vote, and if youth aren't being engaged, then we can't show our political leaders that youth do care about these things.'—Michael Walsh, MUNSU
'And we've been trying to spread ourselves as far as we can across the province, within reason, to show people that young people do count, young people do care and are involved.'—Young Liberal Nathan Barnes
'I think that the parties - all three parties - are really focusing on youth, rightfully so because the youth are the future of Newfoundland and Labrador. We have a very ... aging population. Certainly the oldest population on average in Canada. And when you look around the university centre, these are the people who are going to be taking care of my parents and your parents and our grandparents.'—Young Progressive Conservative Erin Skinner
