Democrats are counting on Generation Z, many of whom recently gained the right to vote, to help turn Congress blue in the midterm elections.
But 49 cents may be all it takes to keep these post-Millennials from exercising their civic duty.
On Tuesday, a Fairfax County, Virginia official said they are noticing a disturbing trend: young people failing to mail in their absentee ballots because they don't know how to get a stamp.
Lisa Connors, of the Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs, ran a focus group this summer comprised of colleges students interning in various county departments.
"One thing that came up, which I had heard from my own kids but I thought they were just nerdy, was that the students will go through the process of applying for a mail-in absentee ballot, they will fill out the ballot, and then, they don't know where to get stamps," Connors told WTOP. "That seems to be like a hump that they can't get across."
Connors went on to say that many in the focus group said "they knew lots of people who did not send in their ballots because it was too much of a hassle or they didn't know where to get a stamp."
"Across the board, they were all nodding and had a very spirited conversation about 'Oh yeah, I know so many people who didn't send theirs in because they didn't have a stamp,'" Connors said.

You can even buy stamps at a lot of grocery stores now.
They are that retarded.
but they know where to buy a bag of Marijuana.
Why don’t they just ask Siri or Alexis?
My gosh ... I asked my kids and they said either the post office or Winn Dixie...
No one tell them!!!!
So Democrat college students are having trouble voting twice?
I buy stamps all the time; all my billing is done by mail, all my personal correspondence is done with HAND WRITTEN LETTERS.
Guess I just prefer the personal touch.
I go through probably 300 to 400 stamps a year.
YUP; the Post Office is where you go to post a letter.
I go to mine once a week, to POST my letters, and to pick up my mail.
And if they don’t know how to write cursive, then we don’t want them voting anyway, right?
Let me answer your question this way: I'm not going to drive my truck all the way to the loafer's bench in town to pick up a load of voters and drive them half-a-quarter to the polls if I suspect they have failed their responsibilities as citizens to be informed on current events.
Now, if there is a shut-in that is actually interested in voting, arrangements will be made.
I buy a sheet of 20 stamps every month,and use them.
>I buy a sheet of 20 stamps every month,and use them.<
I guess it's safe to say you two aren't typical college students.
Anyhow, I don't think I've mailed anything domestically in the past five years.
