The midterm election is coming up this November 6th, 2018. Early voting has opened and there are many options to vote i.e. mail in ballot, absentee ballot, early voting, or going to vote on Election day (Tuesday). This site isn’t political, but this is an important right that teens need to know about. I have links from USA.gov with information about how to vote and register to vote. There are videos below that are PSAs about voting if you are questioning if your vote counts or if it’s worth it.
