    Eighteen year-old seniors who are eligible for voting in the 2016 election have a big decision to make. For a lot of students, this election differs greatly from the those that they grew up watching.

    “I remember watching Obama and McCain during the debates, and they were addressing the audience and certain policies,” Heidi Myers said. “This election is just about who can insult each other the most.”

    Other student-voters at MHS have agreed.

    “This election has had, in my opinion, more attacks between candidates. The debates have consisted of more mudslinging than discussion of policy at times,” Hadley Hageman said.

     Some students are in full support of one candidate, while others aren’t too happy about the choices they’ve been given.

    “Both candidates are not fit to be in office,” Kaylee Eberhardt said. “I’m voting for one just to keep the other out of office.”

     For some students they are not comfortable with releasing their votes, but have contributed to the outcome.

   “I do agree with Trump on some issues, but I am mainly voting to keep Clinton out of the White House,” one student, who chose to stay anonymous, said.

    Young adults are trying to find their voice in this year’s candidates, but very few of them said that any of the nominees actually speak for them. In a few short days, first-time voters here at MHS, and voters across the nation, will find out which candidate has been chosen to be the new President of the United States of America.

    “Although this election has been much more crazy than past elections, I’m excited to vote for the first time in such a historic election,” Hageman said.
