This effort will include a voter registration drive, student research on each of the upcoming November ballot items, unbiased student meetings and discussions on the ballot items, completion of sample ballots by each voting student, and then MISD provided transportation of voting students, faculty, and staff to actually vote during the early voting period.
“We are very pleased to be working with the Voter Awareness Council on this project to have a student led effort to get out the vote in our schools,” says MISD Superintendent Dr. Todd Stephens. “We hope to leverage this effort not only on the upcoming November election but each and every future election as well,” adds Dr. Stephens.
