Politics, elections, information. On November 6th 2018, we had a midterm elections. For a couple HHS seniors, it was the first Election Day they could vote in.

“Voting wasn’t hard, it was pretty easy,” senior Krystal Williams said.

Another one of our seniors that had also voted that day, was Alexis Marsala. Participating in this years election was “something that I’ve been imagining for the past couple of years,” Marsala said. Even though  “It wasn’t the most exciting event,” she was “proud to have exercised my constitutional right.”

This was both students first time voting and in it was new for them to be in such a environment and what were topics they voted for. Williams had said,“ It went a lot faster” than she was expected it to be when ask how was it went for her. She also said, “It was a good experience” for her to learn and the process to it overall wasn’t to hard.

Marsala stated that she had “voted for candidates, propositions, and amendments that would benefit my community, and state as a whole.”

Both students, knew who they were going to vote, as well as knowing what topics they were going to legal.

“I remember voting yes to amendment one, supporting the revision of lobbying laws and campaign finance limits in Missouri,” Marsala stated. Another thing she remembered was “voting yes to amendment one, supporting the revision of lobbying laws and campaign finance limits in Missouri.”

Williams added, “I did know something that were on there, but there were also a few topics I didn’t think would be on there.”
