Seniors…Go Vote!

Chelsey Fernicola
Sydney Shiffman

Have you ever wondered do senior votes matter? Should I vote? Do I care that much about the country to vote? Many 12th graders in Wayne Hills ask themselves these questions. The answer is YES, you should vote. Most people have an opinion and everybody should use it.

Seniors are mostly 18 years old when primary, senator, and presidential elections come around in 2024. Even though the brain doesn’t fully develop until 25, the Wayne Hills high school seniors still have a voice. 

Throughout US History 1, 2 and other classes like American government and legal studies, most high schoolers throughout 4 years find out there opinion on presidents and politics. 

On another note some seniors don’t like politics very much. There is still more to voting, you can vote for the community, school, and your town.

Junior Mia Bacchioni states, “Even though I am a junior I cannot wait to vote, I want to make a difference in the world, and I believe every vote matters.”

When asked the questions “Do you think voting for primary is more important than voting for the actual presidential elections?” 

Senior Sarah Goldman said, “I feel like its equally important because the people we are going to be because the people that win primary will be running for presidential election in November.”

Sarah’s opinion shows how important it is to vote, every vote matters. If you vote you have more of a chance of getting the president you want. With everyone voting there is more of a chance of picking the right candidate. 

Senior Sydney Shiffman states, “I think voting as a senior in high school is important because we all have a say, we are legal adults now. Every vote will make a difference and make the United States more united by people getting more involved.”

The senior Sydney and others talk about getting more involved in politics and the community. You can do this by voting and telling people your beliefs.

Through all the seniors at Wayne Hills, most of them plan on voting. Just remember every single person makes a difference in voting!
