In honor of National Voter Registration Day, many adults are registering to vote and ensuring that their voices will be heard on the ballot. While many teenagers feel that this process won’t affect them until they are 18 years old, some of them are still eligible to get involved! Only 53% of all US citizens vote in elections, meaning that almost half of Americans are not having a say in politics. By pre-registering to vote, you will be automatically prepared by the time you turn 18. Laws differ in different states, but most states allow you to pre-register before you turn 18! Pre-registering to vote can be done in less than 10 minutes and allows you to reduce the stress and pressure that comes with becoming an adult.
