As the approaching date of the election gets closer, some 17 and 18-year-olds are ready to register for voting. Most of them start off by registering online and some via mail. When doing so, they’re asked about their personal information like their name, birthdate and more.

After doing so, they will receive a yellow card with voter information and such. If they’re a 17-year-old, they need to turn 18 before or on Election Day or they can’t vote. They also need to be a both a US citizen and a resident of their state.

“People should vote because it is the best way to let their voice be heard in our political process and it is a great opportunity to elect people that represent their beliefs,” Government teacher Josh Jablonski said.

To let their voices be heard, the teens can vote and have a say in what they believe would be good.
