Katelyn Morrison, 7, and her mother Chrissy Morrison voted for Soldotna’s new mayor Tuesday.
Katelyn, in her school classroom, voted because her preferred candidate “is cool.” Chrissy, because she “liked what he stood for.”
Both Morrisons said they were keeping their candidate choices secret.
“I feel it’s very private and I’m teaching her how private it is,” Chrissy said. “And, so she doesn’t have to go back to her classmates and say ‘Oh, my mom voted for this one’ and there be an argument.”
