On the heels of new laws affecting student instruction, Broward County is kicking off its annual spring student registration drive.
The Broward County Supervisor of Elections’ Office aims to visit 40 high schools in the next month with the goal of registering 8,000 students.
The school that registers the largest number of new voters will get an award from the Supervisor of Elections Joe Scott.
Florida law permits eligible students who are 16 and 17 years of age to pre-register to vote and those who are 18 years old can vote if they are U.S. citizens without felony convictions.
