“I am always excited to vote! I am a quiet person, and this process allows me to select a candidate who will speak on my behalf and work towards bettering our community. Having the right to vote is something I treasure because many populations in our nation's history have not always had the right to vote. I honor my relatives who fought for the right to vote by voting in each election.” — Marnica, graduate student, higher education administration
