(KCEN) -- Election season is less than a month away.
So today one Baylor alumni visited his alma mater to share his book that stresses the importance of the country's young voters.
For many young voters their first presidential election is a big deal.
But today at Baylor Salvator La Mastra, the author of the book, "20-12 for Twenty Something's" was able to shine a light on what they need to know.
His book shows readers each candidate's plan for major issues.
Catching the eye of Kathleen Thompson.
Thompson, a student at Baylor, says, "To be involved in decision making because it's a duty and a right that we have."
La Mastra who actually studied biology took interest in political science.
Seeking unbiased information about both parities.
Partly because in the last election young voters made up almost 20% of the electorate.
"You read it you decide, you become educated and you decide who has the best plan for the country. Not who's on TV or the radio," says La Mastra.
Sal's book has caught the eye of more than just twenty year olds, the University of Pittsburgh and the University of North Florida have made his book required reading."
Dave Bridge, Assistant Professor at Baylor, says, "It's really geared toward college students, they can read it in a way that it relates to their life."
Some of the biggest issues for 20-somethings are unemployment immigration and health care.
But there's some tough ones.
Baylor parent Karen Nelson, "Pro choice their is a lot of moral issues that people should be looking at."
"The economy is not doing well, that's obviously a big issue that we need somebody to take a strong hold," says Baylor student Nicole Chalfant.
Breaking down the facts for voters like Kathleen.
The most important point of the book is not who you vote for, but that you do vote.
If you're interested in 2012 for twenty something's it's available at the Baylor Bookstore.
