A few weeks ago, all anyone was talking about were the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. The internet was ablaze with recordings of speeches, political attack articles and photos of Bill Clinton kicking balloons. Now, although my Facebook newsfeed and my phone’s New York Times updates have been taken over by Olympics buzz, the lasting significance of the two party nominees weighs over our heads as we decide how to vote this November.The Class of 2018 has something to say about their voting preferences in this week’s issue of the Mirror. Hopefully, their voices serve as a reminder of the impact that our decisions on who to vote for, and whether to vote at all, have this fall.
