As everyone knows the day of voting is almost here for the next election. I’m sure you’ve seen political ads on Chris Sununu, Dan Feltes, Biden, and Trump, with everyone telling you that “this is the most important election of our time”. Well in some ways it is, but why should high school students care when most of us can’t even vote yet? Even though you are not the legal age to vote, you should still pay attention to your country’s politics. Listening to debates, reading articles, or watching the news could improve your understanding of what’s happening. If you still don’t understand, ask your parents or grandparents about politics, what their views are, who they are going to vote for, and why. Local elections are just as important as national elections. Chris Sununu is the Governor of New Hampshire, which means he makes a lot of important decisions for our state. Even he is running this year for another term. You should care about what happens to where you live.
It’s a part of your American rights to be aware of politics. Even as a teenager, you are shaping the very world you stand in. Our generation is the future of America.. Eventually, it will be your turn to decide on your candidate and to vote for them, if you pay attention now, you’ll be ready. Your vote will be one of the most important things you can do as an American citizen. So get out and do your research! sure you learn as much as possible about politics and voting because one day you might need to.
