They are called "Millennials" or "Generation Y" and much has been made of their interest and turnout during the 2008 primary elections.

They are almost as plentiful as Baby Boomers — nearly 80 million strong — which makes them a potential force worth getting to know. Most political experts agree if this group floods the polling places in November they could decide who your next president will be.

This weekend, Heather Nauert — who has been covering the youth vote throughout the 2008 election season — hosts an "America's Election Headquarters" special, featuring the reporting of Tiffany Wilson and Ryan Cost from Palestra.net, The College Network.

We'll examine the history of the youth vote in America; the explosion of online and social network campaigning in 2008 and each candidate's "youth vote" strategy.

Plus, our FOX News embedded producers get up close and personal with the candidates themselves.
