STUDENT VOICES ON THE ELECTION

Scared. Unsure. Excited. Mostly afraid. That is how I feel, for someone who is growing up on it. I’m not sure where the next four years are going. I think the candidates are also scared.

I’m excited because it’s the first election I’m voting in. It’s also the first time I’m in an environment where people are educated on the issues. Voting is an important part of being an American.
