Registering High School Students

Getting young people registered to vote as soon as they are eligible induces lifelong voting habits.  That's why LWVNOW has made this an ongoing focus of our voters' services. On March 7, we partnered with Rhinelander High School's Key Club for another voter registration day.  This was our first chance to utilize on-line registration.  We learned ways around a couple of the system's glitches; overall, things went very well. Twelve students registered to vote for the first time.  Key Club members are encouraging fellow students who are 18 years of age, or who will turn 18 on or before the next election day, to complete the quick, simple, voter registration process.
