This study attempts to explore the underlying factors of electoral particition prospects of young people of Turkish origin in the Dutch paliamentary elections. The qualitative understanding provided space for exploring subjective experiences and the meaning the informants ttach to those. Data were collected through conducting in depth interviews with twenty Turkish-Dutch adolescents ranging from 15 to 17 years. A content analysis was carried out after transcription of interviews. The research group is equally divided between those who intended to vote and those who did not intend to do so. Political knowledge appeared as the most important reason behind having the intention to participate in the elections. Most of the informants appeared to be poorly informed on Dutch politics, which disaffects other stimulating factors: having a political ideology, having a party preference, having political interest, having a sense of political efficacy. Actors socializing the individuals appear to hava significant impact on their voting intentions. Yet the research group of this study is undersupplied in this regard.
