SANTA ANA, Calif. — First-time voters in Orange County are amped up and eager to hit the polls ahead of the March 5 primary. 

UC Irvine freshman and member of the Orange County Young Democrats, Nathan Bui, says issues that matter to him are college affordability and climate change. 

Second-year student at Cal State Fullerton and member of the CSUF Republicans, John Gaita, says that inflation and gas prices are driving young republicans to the polls.
