JUDY WOODRUFF: So, one big question for Election Day tomorrow is, will young people show up at the polls? The NewsHour's Student Reporting Labs, our network of high school journalism programs, explored that with future voters.

!_T7LaGnpfwP*HN4v2

EMERSON MORROW, Student: We brought a goat, a miniature goat onto campus, like a fainting goat, and it was, that was our vote goat. And so many folks stopped by just to pet the goat or play with the goat. And while we were there, we said, hey, you know you have already taken a minute. Do you have a second to register to vote? And we registered over 100 people that day. So, that was really awesome.

e5S1lTyskum;

ROSIE BANKS, Student: I think what's encouraging me to vote is especially the fact that some of my ancestors didn't get the vote, and they didn't get a say over how their lives were spent.

ioy6sr_dp7(T1tJ^

ISHAN BHANOT, Student: So, we can't like sit around and say that things are bad without trying to change them. And the major platform for changes voting in candidates that want to change the problems you see.

z4#zmPfr~i

WP,1265gB3BX

JUDY WOODRUFF: Let's hope they all come around to believing that voting is important. We certainly think it is. We're gonna be all over the midterm election results tomorrow night. We have special coverage throughout the evening.
