Shorewood High School students walk out of class, hold rally to encourage voting
SHOREWOOD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Students at Shorewood High School are hoping to encourage more young people to vote.
"Show that we are united, show that we care and we are affected by voting results," said Sophia Wiley, a sophomore at Shorewood High School.
Students walked out of class on Tuesday and held a rally in front of the school.
They want election day to be a national holiday so people can have an easier time to get to the polls.
They also want to show adults that young people do care about politics.
After the rally, students old enough to vote walked to a nearby polling location to cast their ballot.
