Representatives from The League of Women Voters visited students in Carol Sander’s Participation in Government and Economics classes. The purpose of the meeting was to register the students to vote and speak with them about the essential connection between voting and long-term civic engagement.

Students shared their excitement about registering to vote, with student Islam Soltan saying, “It was a great experience knowing that I will now have input into the direction of the government of our country.”

Student Maggie Pariente noted that registering was “a big milestone for her,” while Valerie Desrosiers said, “It makes me feel like an adult.”
