Opinion: A Student’s Take on Voting


By Jessica Ortiz, Journalism, 101

In a world of politics and chaos, we have come to face it again. A month away from voting, a month away from finding out who will be the 45th president of the United States of America.

This will be the second time I will be voting for a president. This is still new to me, as there are many things in which I can agree and disagree with both running parties.

To me, it is very important that we make a choice which can help all of the citizens and non citizens of this country. The point I am trying to make is not to lean towards any party, what I’m trying to suggest is that we all take the opportunity to register to vote.

I know some people say “I’m not good at political science because I don’t understand it,” and others like myself, well we like it, or better yet learn to understand it.

Now we have the immense possibility to become informed about anything we want. Now is the time to learn the dirty and messy world of politics.

In all honesty, I see politics as something so vague and unreasonable. No one will ever agree up on anything or anyone completely.

There is no way on this earth that we will all think the same. But from past mistakes we learn, especially in politics.

Older folks and younger people should vote this year and be part of what is this wonderful confusing country.

Lately a lot of people have been dying in this country and in others. We are lucky to be alive to have the freedom to shape our politics, and think of ways to help ourselves and others. This is our chance to become involved and get educated.

Whether we vote for the old coughing lady or the rich clown, we need to become part of this country and vote.
