This looks like a parody article, but it’s not:

You see, they’re not voting because “I hate mailing stuff; it gives me anxiety”:
My fellow Millennial brethren are so blessed.

And dealing with the Post Office is just too damn hard:
"if someone had the forms printed for me and was willing to deal with the post office, I’d be much more inclined to vote" as annoying as these people are, sometimes that's what u gotta do 😓
but also… AGHHHHH it's not that hard https://t.co/DduM3Ipq7X

Whaaaaat “I have ADHD, and it makes it hard for me to do certain tasks where the payoff is far off in the future or abstract.” https://t.co/vAsOBbMrnx

Alright, but guess whose vote is counted…
Don't be these people…. https://t.co/KV9aKZHd8S

Even the poli-sci major doesn’t think voting is important enough:
Drew's poli-sci professor should fail him for this logic.

WHY IS NOBODY HELPING THEM!
Lots of sympathy for this 28-year-old who isn't sure how to vote and wishes he could learn through a Snapchat filter or Instagram story. https://t.co/Ra3ahrXlT6

Who wants to tell these cupcakes how much harder it gets?
I'd be interested in whether any of the people interviewed for this rage-bait have ever signed up for health insurance or applied for a mortgage or done anything arguably far more complex than figuring out how to mail in an absentee ballot. https://t.co/YZW4nFd1dJ
