    More than half of millennials say they will definitely or probably vote in next week's elections, according to a new NBC News/GenForward Survey.

    Thirty-one percent said they will definitely vote while another 26 percent of respondents said they probably will, according to the survey. About 20 percent said they would probably or definitely not vote.
