LOGAN, W.Va. — The Logan County Clerk’s office had a small crowd of young people registering to vote in the May 10 Primary Election on Tuesday, February 2.
Students from Beth Haven Christian School (BHCS) converged on the Logan County Courthouse to register to vote as part of their Senior Challenge.
BHCS Principal Regina Vance said she issued a challenge to her seniors at the start of the school year. Things the students were asked to complete by the time they graduated included registering to vote, opening a savings account, having their driver’s license, and their registration complete for their college education and funding.
“We had a discussion this morning on how important voting was,” Vance said. “We’re just trying to teach them to be better citizens and to get involved… what they stand for and why they stand for it.”
BHCS students also attended a rally for the West Virginia Religious Freedom Restoration Act held last week in Charleston.
