Hillsdale High School seniors started their day Tuesday with a special visitor.

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted came to the school in Jeromesville in Ashland County to speak about his Grads Vote Ohio program, which encourages 18-year-olds to register to vote and go to the polls. 

He says the up-coming election, from the Presidential race to the Hillsdale Schools levy, impacts their lives and the students should take full advantage of their right to vote.

He also hoped to convince students who are not interested in politics or voting to become involved and make their voices heard at the ballot box.  

Husted's hour-long presentation pointed-out how the people have the power over their government, and by having as many registered voters as possible casting ballots, the results of an election are a more definitive reflection of the majority's preferences.
