Students who are 18-years-old registered to vote, and students who were at least 16 preregistered to vote.

Smith and Bieniek showed students how to fill out the state’s voter registration form, and shared valuable information about primary elections, the general election and running for office.  Students learned how important it is to fill out an election ballot properly so their votes fully count whether they go to a polling site or if they need to access an absentee ballot.

“This better prepares our students for voting in the upcoming presidential and local elections, and informs them for the mock election next fall,” Brown said.
