Today is Election Day, and many people have their reasons for voting.

To some, it is a basic right, which they find imperative and beneficial to the country. To others, it is seen as a chore to upkeep. Whatever the reason, voting is valid to them.

“I vote because I want to have a say in who’s running our country,” Joni Blackburn, social studies teacher, said.

Blackburn said voting is her civic duty.

Today’s election will decide the next governor for the State of Oklahoma, whether its Drew Edmondson, Kevin Stitt or Chris Powell.

Having a right to express an opinion on who he or she may believe best fits the office is also an opinion people may hold. This is why Drew Wortham, seventh-grade social studies teacher, said he was voting in today’s election.

“I vote to voice my opinion,” Wortham said.
