dc.description.abstract This study was designed to ascertain if there is a relationship between online social networking and political participation. Existing research indicates that frequent users of online social networking are more involved in the political process and are more likely to vote. Increased social media usage is also correlated with youth, a factor that is associated with decreased political participation and voting. These contradictory assertions raise important questions about youth, social media, and voting. This study surveyed undergraduate students at Keene State College concerning their online social networking habits and whether they voted in the recent presidential election. Analysis of the data will reveal which elements of online social networking encourage, depress, or are unrelated to the likelihood of voting. Results of this study will be useful to the mobilization or get-out-the-vote efforts of political campaigns.
