Government students enrolled in Mrs. Amy Tillpaugh’s class at Caroline High School got first-hand experience at the November 6, 2018 Election in Caroline County. As part of the Election Day Page Program, students assisted voters at the precincts in Caroline County. Students volunteered at each of the 12 precincts in Caroline for two hour shifts. A total of 21 students participated and logged in 46 hours of volunteer hours. 

The program began with an educational session at Caroline High School taught by Electoral Board Chairman John Nunnally. This session explained the election process and the duties of being an Election Day Page.

“This is such a great program where students learn about local election in Caroline County” stated Kathy McVay, Caroline County Director of Election. “It has been great working with CHS Principal Jeff Wick, Government Teacher Amy Tillpaugh and especially students to bring this program to Caroline.” “It is the hope that students will participate in upcoming elections.”

It is the hope that this program will encourage students to become involved in their local government and register to vote.
