When the 2012 Presidential Election season approached, excitement rushed through me. For the first time in my life, I was eligible to participate in a presidential election. I’d previously voted in local and midterm elections, but the presidential election felt like the ‘real deal’.

As a new wave of high school seniors transition to higher education and enter the workforce, they also acquire a new set of responsibilities to engage in our democratic process as first-time voters.
