County Auditor Ozuna encourages high schools to participate in statewide High School Voter Registration Day
Montgomery County Auditor Jill Ozuna joins Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate and county auditors across the state in encouraging Iowa high schools to conduct voter registration drives on Wednesday, March 22.
“The effort it takes to cast a vote is minimal compared to the effect of change your vote could make.”
State law allows 17-year-olds to register to vote. Currently, there are more than 3,400 17-year-olds registered in Iowa.
“It’s crucial for young people to learn that registering to vote and participating in elections is the best way to make sure your voice is heard,” Secretary Pate said. “My office is working with schools across the state to help them register eligible students.”
Registering to #BeAVoter in Iowa has never been easier. There are several options available, and it only takes a few minutes. You can register anytime online, through the mail, at various government agency offices, at a voter registration drive, military recruiting centers and in-person at your polling place on election day.
