League of Women Voters registers high school students

Region – Local League of Women Voters chapters registered 1,156 high school students to vote during a statewide voter registration drive this spring.

At least 15 Leagues across the state, from Martha’s Vineyard and the Plymouth area to Northampton, partnered with high schools to register the first-time voters during lunch periods, extended homeroom periods and as caps and gowns were picked up for graduation.

The organization at the local, state and national levels has been working to sign up young voters and to encourage them to vote once they have registered.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan, issues-oriented organization. It encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
