Unconventional voters guide

The 20 freelancers of The Seattle Times NEXT team just put out a four-page special election section called "NEXT Goes to the Polls."

It's an unconventional voters guide of sorts.

These young, local writers -- mostly college students and young professionals -- decided the best way to understand and comment on the election was to break it down by issues of importance to them and their peers: education, the economy, sex, drugs, music and the environment.

As NEXT Editor, clearly I'm biased, and proud of their work. That said, I believe the result is a fresh, smart section that is actually fun to read and informative -- for folks of all ages.

For those who say young people are apathetic and could care less about politics and the future, I encourage you to read this section.

If you would like hard copies of "NEXT Goes to the Polls," please let me know.

You can learn more about the NEXT team here.
