Although roller derby is considered an “underground” sport, it has gained quite a following in Indianapolis. When every bout started to sell out at their previous venue, the Toyota Blue Ribbon Pavilion, the Roller Girls moved to the Pepsi Coliseum. Their fans get really into the match and don’t leave early, regardless of the score.

Much has been written and reported on the throngs of youth involved in the presidential primaries and caucuses. But will youth actually have an impact on the general election? Will activism translate into votes?
