It was one of hundreds of events across the nation recognized by the National Voter Registration Day campaign.
The District’s Student Civic Engagement Committee partnered with the non-partisan One Arizona organization, and several community organizations and volunteers across 16 schools.
Approximately 2,000 students are age-eligible (those who turn 18 by November 6) to become voters for the first time.
The students registered during their Advisory periods. Many of the schools had bands, cheerleaders and speakers at their events.
In the last general election, young adults 18-29 were the least likely to vote, however, registration for that segment has increased.
Since February youth registration in Arizona has risen 8.2%, according to TargetSmart.com, from 36% of new registrations to 44%.
