What are young voters looking for this primary?

Tuesday’s primary marks the first time in Illinois’ history that 17-year-olds will get to vote...as long as they turn 18 by the general election date in November. What does a 17 year old want from his or her elected officials? How is it different from folks in their 30’s, or 60’s? Carolyn Mehta of Chicago Votes works directly with young people on voting issues, and gives us an inside perspective. (Photo: Flickr/Oscalito)
