Hello, Texas

Texas has a history of voter suppression.  

That seems to be extending to high schools.  

Texas has a great law that says that twice a year, high school principals must offer eligible students the chance to register to vote.  

But are high schools using this law?  Sadly, no, according to this recent report from the Texas Civil Rights Project.

What is your school doing?

Eligible high school students who are 17 and 10 months can register to vote now in Texas.  This great resource guide will help you organize your school.
While we wish Texas would allow pre-registration beginning at age 16, there are still a lot of people who are eligible who are not yet registered and who can sign up to vote now.
