Quebec Votes 2014: Young voters

According to statistics from Quebec's chief electoral officer, the voter turnout in the 18-24 age demographic has been the lowest of all the province's age groups for decades. In 2008, less than 40 per cent of young people cast a ballot. Those numbers crept back up during the last election, in a year marked by student protests, with more than 60 per cent making their voices heard.

We've brought together a panel of young voters from across Quebec this morning to hear how they're feeling about this campaign so far. Alicia Angel-Despins, in studio in Quebec City, Adam Young on the line from Lennoxville, and Alexandre Julien also on the line, from Rouyn-Noranda.
