The first day of November means it’s time for Student Vote in East High and other high schools! Student Vote makes a student’s voice heard in the city, state, and national levels. It gives the opportunity to vote for six issues, ranging from State Senator, Governor, Secretary of State, and issues such as Medicaid Expansion.

Student vote is so important because student opinions are often suppressed by older leaders in our community and nation. Now we have the chance to get thoughts and opinions out there. Most social studies teachers should be giving the opportunity to vote in class, and even if you aren’t in a social studies class this quarter, you can still vote! The link to Student Vote is posted on your class’s google classroom.

Also, coming up on November 6 is the big voting day for students and adults 18 and over who are registered to vote. Make your voice heard – go vote!
