WATERVILLE, Maine (WABI) - Students from Waterville High School’s National Honor Society are helping their peers register to vote.

They sponsored a march today targeting high school students who will be 18 on or before election day.

They walked from the high school to city hall to support the voter registration process.

Two of the girls who led the march are not old enough to vote, but wanted to do their part in getting others to exercise their rights.

“We just wanted to make sure that our peers were encouraged to vote and they realize the importance of it and that we could help them through the process of voting and getting registered,” said senior Inga Zimba.

“It says a lot that we are involved in politics even though people might not think that we are, we are not going to stand by this election, and even though these people can’t vote they are using their voice in a different way which I think is really cool," said senior Zoey Trussell.

The honor society’s goal is to make the students and community aware of the importance of the upcoming election.
