This year, among all years, is a very important one. This is becasue this is an election year. Now that the residents are of age they have gained the right to vote. This right should not be taken lightly as every vote can and will make a difference. In order to promote this I have put up a board that states what candidates are currently running for their respective parties so that the residents can have some idea of who they are and be able to research them more on their own. The board also has a list of fun facts about voting and the history of suffrage on it. The board also includes step by step instructions so that residents may register and vote here in Platteville so that, even though they are away from home, they can still exercise their right to vote in both the presidential election, and local elections as well.
