CHS hosts a Student Voter Registration Drive!
The latest announcement ringing from the halls of Clifton High School is aimed at 17 and 18-year-olds. In coordination with district administration, the Clifton Student Union and Key Club will be bringing a Voter Registration Drive to CHS. Samantha Derose, who leads district communications, will be spearheading the task to register young voters again, but this year with the help from in-school groups with registered students. This initiative comes with the purpose of ensuring students of CHS are aware of this availability and assisting in making the process easier and more accessible.
For successful voter registration, students will need to have a driver's license, or the last 4 digits of their Social Security number ready with them in school. Students aged 17 and 18 will be able to register. However, voting itself can only be conducted once at the age of 18. The drive will be held during periods 4, 5, 6, and 7 in the Media Center.
Registering to vote is important, especially for young voters. Records continue to show a low number of eligible youth voters casting a ballot. Through projects like this, Clifton High School and student organizations are encouraging civic engagement!
