There's little doubt 2016 will be a decisive year in American politics.

Talk of debates, delegates, and heated rhetoric seem to dominate the 24-hour news cycle.

It's a race that's been defined by outsider candidates, separated by stances that have deepened the chasm between old and young: between the establishment and those who believe that the establishment has failed them.

But for millennials across the country, this year will be unique for one more reason. This year, millions of new voters will come to the polls for the very first time.

Take Two asked four of them to record their thoughts about this election year and assembled this audio postcard.

Thursday, April 21st, Take Two will discuss all things Generation-Y with a special show from Cal State Fullerton's Titan Student Union Theatre. 

From politics and activism to love and housing, A Martinez will bust the myths that millennials are lazy and self-obsessed. 

The event is at capacity, but a live stream can be found here.
