Mac Warner visits Liberty High School

With the upcoming municipal election, West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner’s recent visit to Liberty High School was perfectly timed.

Secretary Warner’s visit paid homage to former U.S. Senator Jennings Randolph; Senator Jennings Randolph is the father of the 26th Amendment of the U.S Constitution. The 26th Amendment lowered the voting age from 21 to 18 years old.

Currently, Liberty High School students, Connor Wickline and Andrew Winters, work with INSPIRE, a nonpartisan, non-profit organization that inspires young adults to vote. Wickline and Winters work within Liberty High School to encourage their peers to register to vote.

Harrison County Clerk, Susan Thomas accompanied Secretary Warner to Liberty, where he spoke about the civic responsibility to vote if you are 18 years of age or older. Warner continued his presentation by explaining to students how their votes can make real change, and provided students example of instances where change was made because of citizens making their way to the polls.

“The impact was significant to our students here at Liberty High School. Our students appreciated hearing from Secretary Warner, and you could look across the room and see the reaction they had to hearing someone of importance tell them their vote can make a difference”, said Liberty High School Principal, Pam Knight.

The importance of cyber security was also discussed at the presentation, as the West Virginia’s voter registration database is housed online, and the steps that are taken to protect it.  

There were several students who registered to vote after Warner’s presentation. Anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to register to vote, and the registration cutoff date to vote in the upcoming municipal election is May 14, 2019.

“I encourage everyone to exercise their right to vote, no matter the election size. Every election is importance and can make a difference”, said Thomas.

Those who wish to register to vote can do so by stopping by the Harrison County Clerk’s office located in the Harrison County Courthouse or the registration form can be mailed into Thomas’s office at 301 W Main St, Clarksburg, WV 26301.
