Turning 18-years-old opens a lot of new doors, including the right to vote. This primary election was the first time for many voters including Oak Hill High School student Sarah Keffer.
Keffer told 59 News it feels good knowing she’s making some kind of difference by voting.
“I would say always if you have the chance to come out and vote, do it because there’s an opportunity not only on election day, but early voting. Just because you know that you’re being heavily involved and that your opinions are going to matter in the community,” Keffer said.
Keffer said Oak Hill High School registered more than 85% of their eligible students to vote.
