Kentucky’s primary elections were held on Tuesday, May 22. It was the first opportunity to vote for the majority of Manual’s juniors and seniors. Many of them used the hashtag #REManualVotes to share their experience.

“[Voting] makes me feel like I’m an integral part of society and that my voice matters. It was really exciting getting to vote for the first time,” Luke Carns (12, J&C)

“Knowing that my generation is one of very low voter turnout, voting as soon as I was eligible to vote, to me, feels like I’m actively defying that stigma and creating a positive change,” Savanna Vest (12, J&C) said.
