BELFAST — Waldo County Technical Center helped their students take an important step toward becoming responsible citizens by participating in National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, Sept. 25. With the help of volunteers from The League of Women Voters Midcoast, 19 students from WCTC are now registered to vote in the upcoming November election.
Students had many reasons for becoming registered voters. Logan Armstrong of Knox stated that being able to vote is part of the “joy of being 18”. Stephen Finley of Jackson said he registered to vote because he “wants to see this country be at its greatest”. Ashlee Butler of Searsport became a voter “so I can pick the next president.”
Voter registration is one of many opportunities that Waldo County Technical Center offers the teenagers of Waldo County in their journey to become adults. Students can also enroll in financial literacy classes, learn to file taxes, create resumes, and hone interview skills.
