The League of Women Voters Metropolitan Columbus is offering a special youth voter registration program to bring civics and voter registration information to schools, especially to those students who would be less likely to receive this information at home.  Unfortunately, we have read studies that only a small percentage of children from any background are getting civics information from their families or from their schools.  We would like to help remedy that in the Columbus area. 
 
You know how important it is to prepare America‚Äôs youth to be effective leaders of tomorrow. One important step in turning them into engaged members of our community, is getting them registered to vote. However, most youth registration target college students, completely missing the 43 percent of Americans with no college experience. Our organization is dedicated to reaching out to high school students and encouraging them to start the path toward lifelong civic participation.
 
We are seeking volunteers to assist with student discussions about the importance of voting, make sure students know their rights and assist eligible students in filling out their registration forms. We will then collect all registration forms and deliver them to the appropriate elections officials.
To volunteer, please sign up for one of the trainings/orientations on either Thursday, February 15 (7 to 9pm) or Sunday, February 18 (3 to 5pm) at the Jewish Community Center on College Avenue.
