We recently sat down with one of our newest members Nayeli to get the inside scoop on what she feels about voting.
Here's what she had to say!
Nayeli tell us, when you voted, how did you feel?
The cafeteria in the elementary school I went to, and then my siblings went to, is my polling location. The voting booths for my ward are always lined up against the back wall, where we would line up to get lunch. Every time I vote I can't help but think about the thousands of students that have come and gone since I've been there. I vote for people that always keep students in mind too, so that in a decade or two my elementary school is still open and hopefully better resourced.
So, Nayeli if you could give one tip to young voters, what would it be?
If I could give young voters a tip it would be to write out any important information that is going to make voting easy and straightforward. Deadlines, polling location address, how you're going to get there, ward number. That way, you could even help friends and family with the process too. Another tip would be to attend candidate forums. It's a great way to meet people and organizations from all over the city and listen to what concerns are raised and how candidates try to address them.
