Local students register to vote

(Continued)

“I feel like if we don’t do it here at the high school, probably over half these kids will never register to vote for the next election,” Kabat said.

Kabat added that voting is one of this nation’s most sacred rights.

“If you were a Communist, they’d knock on your door and they’d put a gun to your head and you’ve got one vote,” Kabat said. “I don’t want it to ever get that way. I want my freedom to vote and have freedom in this country that our Constitution says we have.”
