With a tight score of 52-44 votes, a close election was held on November 4th and came to a close with our returning Governor, Rick Scott and his fellow republicans.

Though the day may seem focused on adults, it also pertains to juniors and seniors- their votes count as well. Juniors are encouraged to pre-register for voting as it is their right to do so and seniors should be proactive in having a say in who gets to be in office.

“I believe more people our age group should vote,” said Paola Trejo, a senior.”But not every one considering some of us don’t know who to really vote for. They need to understand what’s going on in the political world.”

According to www.law.cornell.edu, Section 1 of the U.S Constitiotion states, “The right of citizens of the United States, who are 18 years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of age.”
