High school voter registration week

05/17/2007

 Secretary of State Deb Markowitz kicked off High School Voter Registration Week on Monday, May 14.

Vermont's High School Voter Registration Week, May 14 to 21, was established to "encourage Vermont's high schools to register their 18-year-olds to vote before they leave school," Markowitz said in a prepared statement.

Voter registration activities took place in some high schools during the week, and others used the week to schedule graduation day registration drives.

 "Students find it difficult to register while away at college, the military, or while working," Markowitz said. "We know from experience that Vermont's young people are more likely to vote if they register before they leave high school. We hope many students take advantage of this chance to be registered and ready for the next election."
