Your uncle can go ahead and stop posting all those non-stop political links and memes, since no one who is seeing them is actually going to vote this year.
At this time in 2012, 71% of people under 40 said they were "absolutely certain" to vote. This year, it's only 49% in latest ABC/Post poll.

Maybe it is the choice in candidates this year that is keeping younger people away from the polls? Or maybe, just maybe, half of all voters under 40 are invited to a super rad party that day and will just not have the time to vote?
Whatever the case, leaving the election in the hands of only those voters over 40 will surely make politicians pay attention to things like soaring tuition debt, job creation, equality, and climate change.
Plus, everyone who sits it out will get another chance to vote in four years – you know, if they’re not too busy.
