It shows that US high school students have become more interested in the election and reviews ways in which they can influence the election and ways for them to get involved in the election. 
According to Alain Jean, why should teenagers pay attention to the election?
Teenagers should be paying attention to the presidential election because many high school students will be of voting age by election time. Candidates have views and positions on certain topics that may affect teens’ lives.
