As seniors begin to turn 18, a lot of opportunities, privileges, and responsibilities fall on their already loaded shoulders.
This age is the leap from childhood to adulthood and with it comes great responsibility. One of those great responsibilities is the honor and right to be able to play a part in the election of the President. Voting for the leader of our country is one of the great rights we, as Americans, have and should be taken seriously.
Seniors have full plates this year and with all of the essays, college applications, and sports in their lives, finding the time to go to register to vote is challenging. Although most seniors want to find the time, it can be hard to make the trip to City Hall.
Fortunately, this will no longer be a problem for the seniors at Mason.
Senior Haley Smith has taken it upon herself to bring the registration to the halls of Mason.
This month, Smith has set up a registration stand in the lobby of the cafeteria. To register, all students 18 years of age or older must know their social security number. With that, any senior that is 18 can fill out the registration form right then and there.
Smith will then take the registrations to the City Hall where they will then be processed.
Those who have registered can “expect their voting cards in early May” said Smith.
Expect for the stand to be up and running once a month, with dates being announced during Mustang Block Morning Announcements. Smith plans on getting as many seniors as possible to register so that come the next election we can all rock the vote.
