Ballots Over Memes: Your Vote Matters More Than You May Realize. Here's Why.

After Nov. 9, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton can revert to their non-campaign season level of hipness.

2016 has the potential to be an historic election — if young people actually vote.

While millennials comprise one of the largest voting blocs in 2016, low generational voter turnout has been a concern in recent years. If millennials can recapture the high voter turnout they demonstrated in 2008, then they could be a force to be reckoned with in 2016.

In addition to the presidential election, 469 congressional seats will be up for grabs. Over 1,200 state legislative seats and numerous ballot measures will also be decided on Election Day. A strong voter turnout from millennials on Tuesday could change the face of America.

Simply put, your vote does count — and in a major way.

In the infographic below, A Plus illustrates the most important reasons why millennials could be the defining factor of the 2016 election. Check it out:
