Don’t be surprised if the El Paso Independent School District launches a voter registration drive to get their 18 year olds registered to vote.
It’s part of being a good citizen after all.
We will probably see our state senator visiting the students to tell them how important voting is.
The Ysleta Independent School District used this strategy after their big bond issue failed to get voter approval. A few months later they launched their voter registration program. Then they called for a new bond election. The 18 year olds were encouraged to vote. The bond passed.
As parents and grandparents we should take the time to help the new voters understand the issues related to the EPISD bond election.
We deserve better
