Bowling Green resident hopes vote will have an impact


Emma Collins

Bowling Green resident JJ Lawson said he has not watched much of the election coverage, but that will not stop him from casting his vote today.

Lawson, who went to Parker-Bennett-Curry Elementary School to vote, said he makes it a priority to vote in all of the elections because he thinks he needs to go out and voice his opinion.

“I hope that when I vote it makes a difference,” Lawson said as he stood waiting near the end of the line.

Lawson said no matter how the election turns out, he has no plans to head north for Canada as some people have said they plan to do. He said he will stay right here in Bowling Green and see what happens during the next four years.

“I just hope everything turns out alright for the people,” Lawson said.
