If you are not old enough to vote by the November elections, but would like to make a difference, you can. Many high schools around the nation are participating in Freedom’s Answer campaign.
This is an organization designed for all students too young to vote. It is a voters turn out campaign led by the nation’s youth and is for all students too young to vote. The students who participate in the campaign will have to gather 10 of their family, friends, or community patrons to pledge to vote in honor of the victims of 9/11 and our military overseas.
The goal this year is to break the voters record of 2002 and have 2.5 million students too young to vote, to get 10 people over 18 to pledge that they will vote November 2, 2004.
The Farmington High School is going to try to play a part in the Freedom’s Answer campaign by helping students of age to register to vote. The County Clerk’s office will be coming to the high school on Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2004, at noon to register students of age. The high school encourages all students 18 or older to participate and register to vote and help the Freedom’s Answer campaign. If you are not a Farmington High School student, you can find more information about the Freedom’s Answer campaign on the web page at www.freedomsanswer.net or you can call the County Clerk’s office and set up your school’s own registration date.
