November 6th, 2018 was the day for everyone across the nation to come and vote in the midterm election. The midterm election is where people can elect their representatives while the president is still in office. This midterm will not only change the government but the nation as well. “As Americans, we have that opportunity to vote and it’s important to have a voice in government,” Angie Sherman, an AP Government teacher at ONW, says. Voices can improve changes in the future for our nation.
There are so many ways to make your voices heard. One is Ballotpedia. “Before voting, you can prepare yourself by going onto Ballotpedia to find what’s on the ballot so you can be informed,” Sherman said. But if you’re not 18 or above to vote, you can still be involved by researching the candidates and studying the issues.
