West Virginia Secretary of State, Mac Warner, continues his campaign to teach students about the importance of registering to vote in Harrison County on Thursday morning.

Secretary Warner spoke to students at Liberty High School in Clarksburg about the significance of the 26th amendment, which reduced the voting age from 21 to 18.

This Saturday marks the 48th anniversary of this amendment passing into law, and he says it’s important to acknowledge this big milestone.

Secretary Warner says “we're out here to encourage the students here at Liberty High School to stay involved, get involved, stay involved in the process, and to continue on the proud legacy that we have as all West Virginians.“

Secretary Warner also spoke to students at Bridgeport High School and Lincoln High School.
