New Voters Series, Part Three
Mark Metcalf talks with eight students from Milwaukee's Rufus King High School about voting in their first presidential election this year.
In case you’ve been living under a rock or are criminally apathetic, you’re aware that election day is right around the corner. Early voting and in-person absentee ballot voting has already begun.
For Part Three of the series, I went to Rufus King High School and the students there were very enthused about voting. I talked with eight students—Christina Broughton, Kia Xiong, Tantyana Peer, Mary Berkhalter, Marty Sullivan, Amber Hayashi, Pakau Vang and Sean Salters—who will vote in their first presidential election this year.
