Ask Away poses the question: how can we get young people voting again?

In the six weeks prior to New Zealand's 2014 General Election, this project facilitated political participation by hosting an online question and answer forum between 22,000 New Zealanders and sixty candidates running in the election. It explored whether providing an online platform for youth voices and a means of direct dialogue with candidates strengthened political engagement.
