By: Emily Devereaux ’00, Social Studies Department

On October 18, with the help of Dr. Melinda Blade and the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society Board Members and their moderator, Mrs. Emily Devereaux, OLP hosted a voter registration and pre-registration event, encouraging students to exercise their civic responsibilities and participate in democracy. Volunteers from the San Diego Registrar of Voters were impressed by the enthusiasm of the Pilots as 60 OLP students registered or pre-registered to vote. Julianna Lis ‘20 was among those who pre-registered and was thrilled to be given the opportunity. When asked about her motivation for pre-registering, Julianna said, “I want to vote so my voice can be heard and I can make a difference in our country.”
