On January 16 league member Jamie Benvenutti attended the Effective Youth Voter Registration webinar presented by LWV US Programs and Outreach Director Maggie Bush.
Some tips included:
- Reach out to as many students in the high schools as possible, not just those in government classes.
- Tell your story of how you registered to vote, why voting is important to you.
- Partner with other community organizations who share visions of increasing youth civic engagement. Examples included: NAACP, Retired Teachers Association, “Families in Schools,” and junior leagues.
A training manual is available.
