‘Daily Show’ correspondent Jaboukie Young-White explains why young people don’t vote

Comic and actor Jaboukie Young-White (of Set it Up fame) inaugurated his The Daily Show gig this week by explaining the youth vote to Trevor Noah. The segment got very funny very fast.

The Daily Show recently appointed Young-White “senior youth correspondent” to address the politics of youth. The newest cast member ended up satirizing the apathy of youth voters, as well as lampooning laws and regulations–like ID requirements–that suppress the typically liberal youth vote.

“I don’t need a driver’s license, my Uber driver needs a driver’s license,” Young-White quipped. He went on to encourage new voter innovations, such as mobile voting, voting from home, and making Election Day into a national holiday.
