Putting ballots in the hands of young people

Listen to this story
America's political culture has a deep impact on the lives of young people, from the war in Iraq to education policy to health care. But it's tough convincing young Americans that voting and civic involvement really matter. Sue Halpern is a journalist and writer in the North Country who took on that challenge. Her "The Face of Democracy" project is designed to connect students with the ritual of voting. An exhibit from the project is on display this week at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek. A group of her students will gather for a reception tomorrow evening. Halpern spoke about "Face of Democracy" with Brian Mann.
