Supervisor of Elections Kicks Off Annual High School Voter Registration Drive Next Week
 

Broward County, FL - The Supervisor of Elections will kick off the annual High School Voter Registration (HSVR) Drive on March 16 to March 20, 2015. The effort is presented in partnership with the Broward County Public schools and with significant participation from Broward County Private and Charter high schools. All Broward County High Schools will have the opportunity to register their students who meet the qualifications to become registered voters.

 A student workshop/training was held on February 19, in each school’s media center to communicate voter registration policies and procedures. The video conference training streamed live to the participating schools, hosted by BECON.

Broward County Election officials are scheduled to visit over 40 local high schools next week. Election Officials will be on hand to assist the high school students and staff as they conduct their voter registration drive. The school with the most registered students will receive the coveted brass trophy, banners and certificates. Last year, J.P. Taravella High School registered almost 600 new students.

High School students who are 18 years old are eligible to register to vote. Students who are 16 and 17 years of age may pre-register. The goal is to register 8,500 students this school year.

For further information, contact Gino Herring, Voter Education Director, or Tonya
Edwards, Public Information/ Voter Education Coordinator at (954)712-1303 or log on to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections website at: www.browardsoe.org.
