Young voters listen to U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, October 29, 2007. Young voters have historically participated in U.S. elections at a much lower rate than the public as a whole, but the last two national elections have seen a substantial increase in participation rates.
