Polling - at home or at the booth. A billboard in southern Bismarck spreads awareness of the different ways this year in which eligible ND residents will be able to cast their votes for candidates running for national, state and local positions. Carli Evanson, a BHS senior, is one individual among 18-year-olds across the nation who will be choosing how - and whether - they are going to vote in November’s election. “For the upcoming election, I feel there are many options on how to actually vote,” Evanson said. “I will be going to vote at an in-person facility to fill out my ballot. It is the way I feel most comfortable doing because voting by mail seems too confusing.”

Bringing the seniors together. BHS senior Natalie Schuh continues to add to the Instagram page as more people wish to be represented. She felt that during a time of isolation, students could still connect with each other through this page. “I thought since we weren’t at school, it’d be cool to recognize my classmates since no one really knew much about us from school,” Schuh said.
