Bainbridge - The students in the American Government class at Bainbridge College are learning about the President, and his duties, but they've also been learning about a duty of their own, voting. "It's not only a civic duty," says Dr. John Vanzo, "but it's a way to serve your own interests."
And while most of the students in this class excercised their right to vote, many, if not most of their peer group, did not, but why? 19 year old Rebekah Mann says, "A lot of my friends felt that neither of the candidates were appealing to what they wanted for our country."
And some people just didn't know enough about the candidates. "I think a lot of people just don't know the importance of voting, they don't know the issues enough to feel like they can place a vote," says Melissa Butler.
But these young students want their friends to know that they can, they should get out and vote. "You have that chance, you have that opportunity," says 25 year old Alex Anderson. "It's what people in the past fought and died for, for people to vote, so take advantage of the opportunity when you have it."
And we'll all have that opportunity again in just four more years. Only about 17% of people who voted yesterday are between the ages of 18 and 29.
