Seniors at The New Schools at Carver recently registered to vote and learned the importance of making their vote count in today’s society.
The ‘Making Your Vote Count’ event was an excellent way to prepare students for the upcoming City of Atlanta general election on November 5, 2013.
Students practiced casting their ballot on mock voting machines, much like City of Atlanta voters will soon do as they head to the polls to vote for key offices including Mayor, City Council President and the Atlanta Board of Education members.
Mr. Frederick Huff of the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections spoke to the students about exercising their right to vote. Students were encouraged to learn about current issues and have a voice in the governance of their local, state and national communities.
