Many Dutch youngsters don't vote. What started as a Twitter conversation to get first-time voters to cast their ballot, resulted in a nationwide initiative to get 850,000 youngsters to vote. Within days, the initiative, Stembus 2017, attracted hundreds of volunteers and sponsors with thousands of followers on social media. Marthe Van Der Wolf reports from Leiden, The Netherlands.
