For high school students, the upcoming 2016 presidential election is most likely the first of their lives where they will actually have an idea of what’s going on.

Obama’s reelection in 2012 probably didn’t make much of an impact, considering the oldest a current high school senior could have been was 15. Now that most of the junior and senior population at Northrop is 17 or 18, this election will not only be remembered by them.

Any student that will be 18 years old by Election day on November 8, 2016, can cast votes for the presidential in the presidential primary election for their first time.

Senior Dennis Henman said he plans to vote, but is currently undecided about which candidate he will vote for.

Senior Carolyn Spencer stated she does not plan to vote because she feels that the current candidates are not worth voting for.

Senior Angela Flores said she will register, though she remains unsure on who to vote for.

“I’m not sure, but not Donald Trump,” Flores said.

Registering to vote is easy! If you fit the guidelines on this website by Election Day, you can register here. Voting is a very significant right, so please vote this year if you’re able!
