Is it a surprise to any of us that our current state senator has taken an active part in encouraging 18 year olds that attend school in the Ysleta district to register to vote?
The Ysleta district lost a bond issue earlier this year by about 300 votes if I recall correctly.
It seems that there are about 1,000 students in the district that have reached the age where they are eligible to vote. We have been told that the district has been able to get 800 of them to register.
Take note of the fact that we have not heard anything about the senator working in the other school districts to encourage new voters.
We deserve better
