TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Census data shows voters in the 18 to 25 range barely show up for elections during congressional years.

But, Ion Sancho, the elections supervisor for Leon County, says an interesting race for Florida governor could bring out more young voters in November.

A big portion of them – university students.

"Some of them are going to the school for the first time so they're not thinking about voting. What we will see is a dramatic increase in Leon County's turnout in the fall and hopefully all of these jurisdictions around the state will likewise see increases," Sancho said.

People in the 18 to 25 range make up about 13 percent of voters in Duval County. That's only second behind the 66 and up range.
