Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio A study of students at New York University says many of them would trade upcoming votes for various levels of money.

Reaction from the University of Utah showed students there have strongly mixed opinions.

"I don't really care to vote anyway," one student said.

However, another said, "As small as it may be on the national scale, it's important to me to have that and to be an individual and say something."

The survey also found 20 percent of the students would trade next year's vote for an iPod Touch. Half would trade a lifetime of voting for $1 million.

Those at the University of Utah who said they'd trade for the money said they felt they could do more good with that than they could with a vote.
