The American flag is flying high at Eagle High, and soon a new generation of voters will be able to impact the American Government.

With 2024 approaching quickly, the U.S. presidential election is beginning to heat up, and this year, the senior class gets the opportunity to cast their votes for the next president of our country. It’s a wonderful opportunity that many seniors at Eagle High are excited to be able to participate in. 

Every four years, U.S. citizens vote for president and vice president in a general election. This year, the election will be held on the first Tuesday of the month, Nov. 5, 2024. The process to elect a president takes almost two years, and as presidential primaries approach, the field of potential candidates continues to grow. Many of the candidates are running in the Republican party, with former President Donald Trump being one of the first to declare his candidacy for the Grand Old Party (GOP) nomination and is currently the front-runner in early polls. President Joe Biden has also announced he is running for reelection to try to secure his second consecutive term.  

According to, “Former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have dominated the early Republican race as the other candidates look for an opening to take them on. President Joe Biden faces a couple of Democratic challengers but is expected to secure his party’s nomination.”  

Many in the senior class, as well as a handful of juniors, have the unique opportunity to vote while in high school. It’s important to keep up on the election and its candidates to make the decision one feels is the best. Students that are 18 or older can register to vote online or by mail up until 25 days before the election, or in person at their local election office up until the election day. To start an online registration, simply go to online, select Idaho as your state and fill in the necessary information.

“I am excited to vote this year because I want to have a part, even if it’s just a vote, in who becomes president,” said senior Ava Shoplock.  

It’s important for young adults at Eagle High to stay informed about the 2024 presidential race and election. Although it is not required to vote in an election in the U.S., it is always encouraged to vote and voice your stance and opinion for the good of the country.
