Happy National Voter Registration Day. This is a non-partisan effort to encourage people to exercise their right to vote. Here are a few resources and articles you can use to discuss and encourage your students to register or get family and friends to do the same. Even if students are not old enough to cast their vote, we must empower them with knowledge of their rights and the voting process.
Today may be just one day…however, voter registration remains open.
