UC Irvine political-science professor Louis DeSipio told City News Service he only had “anecdotal” evidence, but noted that he has seen a much higher level of engagement among younger voters, who traditionally are the most apathetic. “I’ve been amazed at it all week on campus,” DeSipio said. “The lines have been 45 minutes to an hour long (to vote), nicely snaking around the campus.” DeSipio added, “I sense more students are volunteering, too. They’re active in recruiting people, and they know that an investment in labor could pay off with a job or internship someday. There’s definitely more activity than four years ago or eight years ago.”
