Abstract:To have a well-functioning democracy it is important that the population is represented by those elected. One of the most effective ways to do is by getting the highest possible number of residents to vote during municipal elections. However, the turnout at these elections is very low. Experience shows that it is not possible to motivate everyone to vote. Political parties and municipalities have invested a lot of effort in motivating and informing people about elections and its importance. However, tempting people to vote during the election for the local council is a difficult task for all municipalities, especially when it concerns young adults. It remains unclear what drives young adults and how municipalities can pursue them to vote for the local elections. Therefore, the current study was designed to investigate the voting intention of young adults according to the Information, Motivation and Behaviour (IMB) model.
