Last week approximately 110 students from Cleveland Metropolitan School District came to the Board of Elections to cast their votes. Congratulations to these first-time voters!
This organized effort stemmed from the Second Annual Your Voice Matters Youth Summit which took place on September 14. During the summit, students from around the county learned about the importance of voting and how to participate in the democratic process. Students created action plans to encourage their classmates to both register and actually vote. Their plans came full circle with class field trips to the Board of Elections during early voting.
