Journalism students from Serbia’s second city of Novi Sad have launched an online campaign called “Go and Vote” to motivate fellow students to go to the polls in the April presidential election.

“We decided to make voting closer to students through an easy, fun and educative way,” Lea Kotlica, a student who participated in creating the campaign, told BIRN.

“We’re calling on the young to vote with posters, videos, infographics and gifs. It is not important if someone is left or right-wing oriented, what’s important is voting,” Kotlica added.

She and her colleagues say the young have no right to complain about the situation in Serbia if they do not try to change it.
