Coming to college and with recent issues, I started to realize how important it is to take part in the election process. In my sophomore year, I started working as an election judge and it was the first election I was able to vote for. It’s a long and tedious training process, but it’s an honor and privilege to be a part of the process. It’s a long day on election day when you have to wake up and get to the polls at 5 am to stay until around 8 pm to close up. It was very slow at first, as it was a day off of classes so everyone was sleeping in. Around lunchtime, we got a message from the county clerk's office to expect it to be busy and of course, the line started. A huge group of people just appeared and a line formed down the hallway.
