We are proud that Governor McAuliffe values youth civic engagement and has declared April 23-29, 2017, as Virginia High School Student Voter Registration Week.

Any person who is 18 or older, or who will turn 18 before the next general election, is eligible to register to vote. Registering to vote online is easy at vote.virginia.gov.

Nearly 2,500 qualified 17-year-olds registered to vote during the 2016 Virginia High School Student Voter Registration Week, and 52,806 18-year-olds voted in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Virginia’s 2017 elections are critical, and we need young people’s voices to be heard.

Celebrate High School Voter Registration Week with us by texting or tweeting five friends to make sure they are registered to vote!
