Redmond High students are enthusiastic about "getting out the vote" this November.
All day Tuesday, Susan Bale's government classes manned a table on the school grounds to encourage eligible students or even visitors to the school who were not registered to vote - to sign up. "One of the things is: it opened up the opportunity to talk about the importance of voting in general, and you cant vote unless you're registered. And we've talked quite a bit about the power of young people. That seems to be an untapped power right now, so hopefully they got the idea that it's important to participate and have their voiced heard."
Dale says her students are very interested in the Presidential race; and the topic generates a lot of opinions and all are well thought out.
She says they gathered about 120 "new voter" registration cards that they will deliver to the county clerk in the next few days.
