#CTL4: Convince Skyler to vote!

Skyler Gayhart, soon to be 18, says he feels too young to vote in the presidential election. But he does care about issues, particularly overcrowding. There are too many surfers competing for the same waves in Hawaii, he said. Send him a message and tag it #CTL4. Help CNN boost Hawaii's turnout.

  5. Stephanie BrakeSkyler, I remember voting for the first time at about your same age. I felt pretty special when I finished. It makes you feel you have done sometihing very important and serious. You feel more a part of this big natiion of ours. Your vote truly does matter and your opinions matter also. Please use for the first time your right to vote. You will be proud and glad you did. Don't worry if you're not familiar with all the candidates, I wasn't either at your age when I voted for the first time.
  6. Lindsay KoonsI, for one, am voting because my aunt has a greater chance of getting a kidney with one candidate versus the other. If you're concerned about local legislation, at least vote in the local elections, but know that policies do come down from above, so if you don't vote for a particular Pres or congressperson who would vote for your cause, don't complain if it doesn't go down the way you want. In any case, it's fun. Cheers!
  7. Mike RainsSkylar IT IS YOUR FUTURE, the actions legislators take today coudl result in your losing your freedom or your wealth. DO YOU WANT TO BE STRADDLED WITH $25 TRILLION OF DEBT FROM THE BABY BOOMERS? If only the Boomer vote, then they will pass that debt to YOUR GENERATION. So VOTE and TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR FUTURE!!!!
  8. Skyler kids in other countries your age died over the right to vote. A young gal in Pakistan younger than you just got shot in the face b/c she was fighting for her rights as a young woman to go to school. Democracy is not a video game - its real and you are the US' future! A year from now you may be a college student and in need of a federal aid (grants or loans) - who wins this election may determine if that is even there for you as well as your friends! Your vote matters.   You also  might want to check out Samuel Jackson's video's Wake the @#$% up for some more inspiration! Mahalo!
  9. #CTL4 #CTL6: Hey guys, so I know the election may not matter to you at this point since you guys are still young. But, put it this way, one day you will understand how your vote can help change the world. Everyones thoughts and ideas go a long way. Your future will be based on how we elect our Presidents now and unfortunately if we are close minded, then were never going to make a change for our world. So, please go out and vote and please try and help out our society, by taking the time to vote. CHOOSE THE MAN WHO HAS THE BEST PLAN!
  10. To the young man who doesn't think he is smart enough, why not?  You can make intelligent decisions.  And if you vote regularly, you are going to cast some votes that you regret.  So what?  No political system is perfect, and those votes make you a better informed voter the next time. And they give you the right to complain when the candidate you voted for turns out to be a disappointment.   If you take the time to vote, it is almost inevitable that you are going to learn something about the candidates you are voting for.  That in itself is going to make you a more informed voter and a better citizen.
