The Cheshire High Young Democrats, recently recognized by the High School Democrats of America as the Best Local Chapter in the United States, will be sponsoring its annual Cheshire High School Young Democrats Political Rally on Oct. 27 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Cheshire Senior Center on 240 Maple Ave. in Cheshire.
Annie Wang, president of the Cheshire Young Dems, said the Cheshire High Young Democrats are dedicated to supporting Democratic Party candidates and to increasing the engagement of the youth of America in the political process. The Cheshire Young Democrats have been active for nearly ten years, campaigning for local, state, and federal elections.
"Recently, voter turnout in America has been extremely low," Wang said. "Democrats, who experience the lowest turnout rates, are the most affected by this trend, and can lose elections even when in the majority.
"With this rally, we hope to get voters excited for the upcoming election, and to help keep the state of Connecticut a true blue state."
Multiple candidates running for positions at the local and state level will be attending the Cheshire Young Dems rally. Admission will be $10, if one wishes to eat dinner. It will be catered by Disorbo’s Restaurant and will include drinks, chicken marsala, baked ziti, bread, and salad.
