Young voters are coming out in record numbers this primary season to cast ballots. Youth Radio's Donald Moore voted for the first time in Brooklyn, New York. He tells the story of preparing to vote, fighting over IM with friends about candidates and finally participating in the process.

"Even though I'm 19 years old, I went to the polling place with my parents," he says. His father, over 70, had never seen so many people from their neighborhood voting before.
