The Kids Voting program wants to remind young people who have recently turned 18 years of age and residents new to Alaska to be sure to register to vote for the general election. The deadline is Oct. 6 and the Division of Elections at 240 Main St., Suite 601, (465-3021) will be open both Saturday, Oct. 5, (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Sunday, Oct. 6, (12 noon to 4 p.m.) to accommodate late registrants.
Election Day is Nov. 5. On that day, students will be encouraging their parents to take them to the polls so that they can vote at the Kids Voting booths. In the next month, our students will want to talk with adults about the candidates and ballot issues. Let these eager future voters know that you care enough to register to vote.
