Kayla Schoen and Kinsey Patterson speak with Mrs. Mayo and Mr. Dobson about the voting process.
Students who will be eligible to vote in November had the opportunity to register Tuesday morning at the High School.

Election Commissioner Stanley Dobson and Commission Member Louise Mayo manned a table full of forms, pens, and clipboards in hopes of getting young people involved with the democratic process.
