PODCAST: Young-voter turnout improving nationwide; Will Ohio follow?

By Andrew Kuder / Broadcast version by Mary Schuermann reporting for the Kent State-Ohio News Connection Collaboration. 

Sam Lawrence is running for an Ohio Statehouse seat at 19 years old. 

“I’ve always been one of the kids who watched the news, and I knew what was going on, not to the full extent of, kind of obviously, what I’m involved with now,” said Lawrence. “[It was] probably right before high school or early in high school when I really found kind of this interest in the politics of it all, not just in the campaigning, but also in the public service aspect once someone is elected.” 

Lawrence, a political science major running as a Democrat in Ohio’s 47th district, hopes his campaign will inspire other Ohioans his age to get more involved in politics.”
