Es­sen­tial for youths to make a change in so­ci­ety

The Maui News - - OPINION -

I would like to ex­press my ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the April 5 edi­to­rial, “Don’t For­get to Reg­is­ter.” My­self, be­ing a high-school stu­dent and a part of this new ris­ing gen­er­a­tion, be­lieve it is es­sen­tial for my peers to make a change in so­ci­ety. Vot­ing may seem like not a big deal, but there are so many changes that we can make. We sim­ply do not re­al­ize that or tend to for­get.

Read­ing the edi­to­rial es­pe­cially caught my at­ten­tion with the men­tion of Trump since there is so much con­tro­versy about him. A lot of stu­dents nowa­days are un­aware how easy it is to reg­is­ter to vote, in­clud­ing me.

As men­tioned in the edi­to­rial, New York state makes it dif­fi­cult for first-time vot­ers to reg­is­ter. Hawaii res­i­dents have no ex­cuse and ev­ery­one should use it to their ad­van­tage. Al­though we are a small state, it is im­por­tant to keep in mind we still are the peo­ple of Amer­ica.
