HELENA - The Secretary of State Linda McCulloch spoke with students at the Capitol about the importance of elections and the right to vote.
McCulloch told them about how she got into public office, saying in the beginning, she didn't think she was smart enough to run for the Montana House of Representatives.
McCulloch also told students that in her experience running for public office, she knows the value that each single vote holds. "If there's one time that you do your homework, not the only time you do your homework, but if there's one time you do your homework, it's when you're going to vote, you absolutely need to know the issues and the people on the ballots so you can make an informed decision," said McCulloch.
When asked by one student what she'll run for next, she replied, "Maybe I'll retire from politics."
