Personal Statement

Growing up, I was taught the power of engaging in local government by family members. Local government has a significant impact on the everyday lives of individuals, yet voter turnout is consistently lower for these races than national elections. Local governments are responsible for filling the pothole outside your house, maintaining your favorite park, and other seemingly little things that can drastically affect your day-to-day routine. Turnout in these elections is even lower for young voters who often lack the resources and ability to navigate voter registration forms and ballots. In high school, I realized I can reduce these barriers by walking them through the registration process and helping them decide the most convenient way to vote. I continued this work in college by joining OSU Votes, a nonpartisan group that empowers students to vote.
