Suffrage be damned. At least, that's what an alarming number of millennials said in a 2017 poll when asked what they would be willing to give up for their student loan debt to be wiped out in return. Years of civil rights movements aimed at giving everyone an equal vote in elections could go out the window for all they care, but with the staggering amount of student loan debt, it could be the only way out for most.
In 2017, the online loan service Credible released a survey that CNBC said offered "insight into just what millennials would be willing to do to be free of those loans." In the survey, 500 millennials were asked to share what they were willing to give up if it meant their student loan debt would immediately disappear. While options like "never using a rideshare app again," "not traveling outside of the United States", and "moving in with your parents," all ranked high on the list, nearly 50 percent of millennials would give up their right to vote in the next two presidential elections.
