Simon Bazelon started this petition to New Haven Board of Education

The last several weeks have seen an outpouring of energy from young people in New Haven, and across the country. Yet, too many young people are still disengaged from politics – in Connecticut, only 47% of 18-24 year olds are registered to vote. But by expanding voter registration efforts in New Haven Public Schools, we can change that.

New Haven Public Schools should:

- Distribute voter registration forms to all graduating seniors
- Allow students to give completed registration forms to their teachers instead of having to mail them to the Registrar of Voters themselves
- Educate students about the importance of registering to vote, and the importance of voting

The Board of Education will begin considering whether to adopt these reforms at their governance meeting on July 6th. Sign this petition to let them know the New Haven community supports expanding voter registration efforts in New Haven Public Schools.
