LISBON, OH—Excited to finally participate in the democratic process, area voter Jacob Armstrong told reporters Tuesday that he will always remember casting his very first ballot for state representative Nick Barborak. “I’ve got many elections ahead of me, but my vote for Nick Barborak’s definitely going to stand out from all the others,” said Armstrong, 19, who was among the first to arrive at his local polling station to help reelect the Democrat and former Columbiana County treasurer to a second term in the Ohio General Assembly. “Voting is the most important thing we can do as citizens, and I can’t believe I’ll get to do it my very first time when District 5 is on the line. It’s just so cool to think that I might play some small role in another two years for Nick Barborak.” At press time, Armstrong was carefully peeling off his “I Voted” sticker, pasting it on a flyer from the Barborak campaign, and filing it away for safekeeping.
