Senior prepares students for 2012 Election Day

With Election Day just around the corner, a Providence High senior is helping to prepare and inform his peers.

Arjun Gupta collaborated with GenerationNation, formerly known as Kids Voting Mecklenburg, to create a student voter guide. His guide includes information about the U.S. House, County Commission, the North Carolina General Assembly, and Register of Deeds, among other materials.

In the guide, Arjun explains he came up with the idea to create the document after he found little public information about candidates for Mecklenburg County offices.

Charlotte-area students who are ineligible to vote in the 2012 presidential election have the opportunity to participate through the Kids Voting mock election.

This is the 20th year GenerationNation has offered the non-partisan educational program in Charlotte, according to their website.
