Commentary: My first presidential election voting experience

Note: Alli Walbolt, an ONU student, is an intern for The Ada Icon this fall.

Being able to exercise my right to vote has always been an exciting thing for me. In 2010 I registered to vote within a month of my 18th birthday. I couldn’t wait to vote in my first ever election, though it wasn’t quite as glamorous.

This year was my first presidential election and I was more involved in politics than I ever had been. I watched the debates and other political coverage, read articles and candidate platforms, and researched issues and people that would be on my ballot.
