Students excited to vote for the first time
By Audrey Posten, North Iowa Times Editor
“I’m excited that my voice finally matters.” Emily Hanson, along with her fellow MFL MarMac seniors Kayla Keehner, Tristen Kautman and Peyton Meisner, will be among the millions of young Americans eligible to vote for the first time in the Nov. 8 general election.
They’re taking their rights seriously.
“It’s a privilege,” Kautman shared. “It’s one of the most historic elections.”
It’s also a bit surreal, though, admitted Keehner.
