Albany-- You have to be 18 or older to vote.

But, some Lee County students who aren't legal will be participating in the process.

Twenty Lee County High School students are being selected to help out at the polls this year.

Darton College student Brook Raper will be helping out too. She says her experience working an election is a lesson other young people can learn from, "Yeah, I think it is important. I think young people my age should get involved with people and elections and politics, I think it is very important."

This is the second year that Lee County high school students have been allowed to work at the polls on election day.
