Today is National Voter Registration Day!
To help celebrate and encourage students and adults to register, Teaching Tolerance (TT) has put together some greater resources on their “Register Voters” page.
If you’re already supporting voter-registration efforts at your school, share it here and add your name to the Voting and Voices map. Also be sure to spread the word on Twitter using #UseMyVoice and #UseMyVote.
Even students who are ineligible to vote can pledge to participate in the democratic process with these two pledges you can share with students—and their families—to empower them to use their voices or their votes in the 2018 midterm elections.
The health of our democracy depends on the next generations of voters and voting advocates. There is no better time to commit to helping students register to vote and identify as agents of civic change. For further resources, see TT’s Voting and Voices page to give your students the tools—and the support—to participate in the democratic process.
