Virginia's Voters Getting Younger

Virginia's pool of registered voters is getting younger.

According to the State Board of Elections, about 64 percent of the more than 200,000 new voters who have registered since January are under the age of 35.

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has been widely credited with drawing more young voters into politics. But exactly what that means for Obama's chances in Virginia remains to be seen.

Virginia hasn't backed a Democrat for president since 1964, and both political parties are conducting voter registration drives in the state. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
