Gwyn Smith is a college student currently taking remote classes from her home in Berkshire County. Gwyn’s family isn’t really into politics, but she says the Parkland school shooting opened her eyes about the power of protest, voting, and participating in democracy.

Gwyn joined Zydalis Bauer to talk about what it’s like preparing to cast your vote during a pandemic, how to avoid information overload but stay informed, and what issues matter to her as a Gen Z voter.
