Republican Convention Draws Young Voters

Posted: Updated:

While the Democratic party is often associated with young voters, there were plenty of youthful faces at this weekend's Republican Convention.

State GOP Chairman Robert Harms noted that there were more young delegates in attendance this year.

There were also plenty of pages who say they enjoy the chance to go to the convention and get informed on state issues.

"Last time we had the convention, which was two-years-ago, I helped out Rick Berg. I wasn't an official page, so this is kind of cool, it's my first year being a page. I'm doing it. I don't know, I like being in government, and I like helping people out, so since I'm not an actual delegate this is my way to help," says Sierra Heitkamp of the Younger GOP Voters.

Heitkamp says it's important for both teens and young adults to be educated on state politics so they can make better decisions on Election Day.
