Website helps educate young Indonesian voters about politics

- +

Many young Indonesian voters used to take a dim view of politics and elections, but those negative perceptions may have changed, thanks largely to Ayovote.com 

Pingkan Irwin, who helped found the website last July and is responsible for public relations, said the idea behind the site was to educate young people about Indonesian politics and encourage them to exercise their rights in the legislative elections on April 9 and the presidential election coming in July.
