Chloe Groome, a UCLA student, talked with KPCC about the youth vote.

There’s a lot of issues that matter to me on an individual basis, but the thing that I think is most important, overall, is getting young people to vote.
There’re a lot of issues in California right now that are going to come down to a few thousand votes. So, I just feel that it’s just really important for young people to get their voice out there and realize that their vote matters.
I pay attention to politics, and I know that politics matters on an individual level. The personal is political. And so, in my own life, I try to make other people realize that their decisions matter and that voting matters.
I’m young myself. I want to see my interests represented.
