FISD Students Work Election Day Polls
Frisco ISD is very proud of Frisco High School students Hunter Fritch and and Maegan Short for serving as student election clerks in Denton County on November 6. The students were sworn in with three different oaths by Fred Rogers, a Denton County election judge. Rogers, along with his fellow members of the American Legion, also volunteers regularly with Frisco ISD to register students to vote. The FHS students worked the polls in two seven-hour shifts so that, between them, they witnessed every minute of Election Day from set up to closing. Fritch and Short were trained in all aspects of working the polls. Rogers said it was his role to see that they learn about the entire voting process, which involves about five different jobs. “I was proud to be able to offer this experience to them,” Rogers said.
