Although he knew who he was voting for well in advance, he said he continued to seek out non-biased news sources to stay informed.

However, she said it was a rewarding experience to be able to vote for president of the United States. “It felt really great to vote for the first time,” she said. “It makes me feel like I truly have a say in my government. I am finally of age to make educated decisions that could help the future of this country.”
“It was a great experience,” added Infield, “and I look forward to doing it again in 2016.”
