#VoteYall: Matt Faulkner talks about why it's critical young people vote in this upcoming mayoral election
Today 12th & Broad introduces the beginning of a new video series as part of our ongoing #VoteYall campaign promoting voter registration and turnout among young people in Nashville.
We know this column is supposed to be about the upcoming mayoral election, but this week, the campaign for Nashville's new leadership was overshadowed by news coming out of the state legislature. In a nutshell: A likely "no" on health insurance for poor people, a probable "yes" to waiting periods on abortions, and a definitive "not" to the Bible becoming the official state book.
This week marks the eighth (!) in our #VoteYall campaign – in which we work to make it EASY to keep up with the issues swirling in this upcoming mayoral and Metro Council race here in Music City. (Plus, we sprinkle in a few nuggets from the state legislature, which has nothing to do with the city election, but can be interesting and highly entertaining.)
