FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham League of Women Voters is holding a student voter registration drive at Framingham High School on Wednesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“It is important to remind people that democracy is not a spectator sport. The Framingham League of Women Voters’ mission is to encourage an informed and active electorate,” said Stephanie Deeley, President of Framingham unit. “We are glad to be back at FHS providing our high school students an easy way to register to vote ahead of the city elections this fall, and the presidential election in 2020.”
Voter registration will take place in the cafeteria.
Individuals are eligible to register to vote in MA if they are:
- A citizen of the United States
- A resident of Massachusetts
- A least 16 years old to pre-register. (To vote you must be 18 years old on or before Election Day.)
The Framingham League of Women Voters has been actively engaged in the community since its inception sponsoring debates, doing voter registration at the summer Concerts on the Green, holding several League sponsored Informed Framingham events, and with their cable access show.
As a nonpartisan grassroots organization, we encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.
The League is open to all (including men) and is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives.
