The Young Democrats mobilize Eastern students to participate in the electoral process, influence the ideals of the Democratic Party and develop the skills as leaders from the school to the national level. The goal of the Young Democrats is to increase the number of young people voting for Democrats and to support the Democratic Party.
The group also seeks to increase political awareness with their peers by discussion, making signs, and making shirts.
The Young Republicans are a political organization that spread the growth of the Republican Party. They reach out to students and provide them with better political knowledge and understanding of the issues of the day.
Each year Eastern High School's Young Republicans gather to discuss important issues and how they will help Republican candidates for any upcoming elections. They do this by campaigning with door to door walks, making phone calls, and participating in the Middletown Festival Parade. Their goal is to educate young adults about politics and the importance of voting.
