My candidate’s better than youuurs!

It looks like the League of Women Voters have created a randy new program that has a great potential to mobilize young people to vote — when they turn 18, that is! The News Review reports.
The League of Women Voters of Oregon are seeking high schools and middle schools across the country to participate in a mock election that will take place next month. More than 10 million students took part in the mock elections during the last two presidential years. The purpose of the program is to get youngsters interested in politics and the electoral process, as well as motivate them to get out there and vote when they turn eighteen.
I think this is a fantastic idea that can really inspire young voters and future voters. So if any of y’all are teachers (or students) and wish to participate in the nation’s largest voter education project, click here to get more information about getting your school involved!
