Seattle Times Gives Young Bloggers Political Voice

The Seattle Times is giving young citizens a voice with new feature built around blogs. Here is part of its introduction:

In an election year both decisive and divisive, it seems time to hear from the sidelines.

Not from political activists, journalists or insiders, but from younger voters closely following the campaigns and who feel personally affected by the outcome.

In that vein, tomorrow The Seattle Times is launching the Backyard Blog project. A dozen-plus voters younger than 35, from across the region and across the political spectrum, will share their election-season experiences.

The idea is to find out what they’re seeing and thinking, and what they hear others saying in the grocery store, the neighborhood cafe, their jobs and homes.

Thanks to Micro Persuasion for the pointer.
