New Voters Series, Part Four
Many young people will vote in their first presidential election this year. Mark Metcalf talked with three Wauwatosa East students who are doing just that.
Unless 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 Four of our New Voters Series, I went to Wauwatosa East High School, where I talked to three students—Jordan Schmidt, Peter Garafolo and Rachael Deshotels—who will cast their first votes in a presidential election on Nov. 6.

Students at Wauwatosa East also discussed voting on the school’s video announcements. You can see that video below (the segment on voting begins around the 1:00 mark).
