Question: Do you think it’s important for high school students to be involved in the election process even if they can’t vote yet?
Join the discussion. Post a comment with your answer to this week’s question.
Taylor Moncrief, 15, Diamond Bar High School
I think it’s very important for high school kids to watch the debates, ask questions about the issues and to s<MD>tudy how our elections actually work. Most teenagers just go along with the political leanings of their parents, but we’re at an age when we need to start making our own decisions and those decisions should be based on facts.
Nicholas Kuche, 16, Covina High School
I believe that it is very important for students to participate in the election process even if they can’t vote yet. If schools could hold fake elections, it will give the school and the community a view on what the high school population thinks about the candidates.
Katie Montemayor, 17, Glendora High
I do believe that high school students need to participate in the election process because at some point all high school students will be voters. To get the early experience with the election process will help students to know how to make informed decisions later in their lives.
Kasey Haas, 16, Glendora High School
Yes, I think it is important for students my age to participate in the election process because whoever becomes president will make decisions that affect everybody, including high school students. Also, by the next election most high school students will be eligible to vote, and the new president will most likely run for their second term and the voters will need to make an imformed decision.
Derek Klena, 17, South Hills High School
I think it is very important for high school students to participate and discuss the presidential election process. Even though we are not exactly voters, we should be exposed to others’ opinions and ideas regarding the issues and debates. Since we are the future, i believe that it is important that we know who the next leader will be and the concerns that our country is dealing with.
Amanda McCraven, 14, La Verne Lutheran High School
Yes, I think it is important for students my age to participate in the election process because whoever becomes president will make decisions that affect everybody including high school students. Also, by the next election most high school students will be eligable to vote, and the new president will most likely run for their second term and the voters will need to make an imformed decision.

It’s a tough drive on some of the holes at the Mountain Meadows Golf Course in Pomona. But it’s an important fundraising drive for Mt. SAC’s Fire Academy on Friday, Oct. 24.
The firefighting students are trying to raise $30,000 to refurbish three old fire engines as well as buy some much needed equipment.
Fire Chief Jerry Austin notes that some of the equipment is older than many of the students. “If we have outdated equipment, it doesn’t train our candidates to be at the level they need to be,” Austin said.
The tournament offers a four-person scramble format with checkin at 10:30 a.m. A putting contest will begin at 11:30 a.m. A $5 entry wins $125.
