So, today is National Voter Registration Day. Since some of you are old enough to have a say in this year’s election, I thought some resources might be in order.
First…you have to register to vote. So, the first thing you need is a voter registration form. You can print them out and mail them in. The deadline in PA is October 9th. In New Jersey, it appears to be October 16th.
Want some election related books? There’s a bunch on display in the library, including Vote for Larry Janet Tashjian, about an 18 year old who runs for president, because the Constitution says you must be 35 to serve, but says nothing about running. Declare Yourself is a collection of essays by famous people talking about their experience with voting. For the middle school, one of my favorites is Josh Lieb’s I Am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President, about a 7th grade evil genius who has convinced everyone he is stupid and has decided that class president will add to his evil empire.
