Features Overview

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. It doesn’t matter what side you’re on, it’s your right to vote for the people who will dictate the future of this country. Educate yourself about the candidates and the referendums on the ballot.

35,000 inter-country adoptees are without citizenship. These are their stories. The Child Citizenship Act of 2000 granted automatic citizenship to inter-country adoptees under the age of 18. Adoptees who were over 18 before 1982 were left out of this bill. Most don't have a pathway to citizenship.

This bill is has not been passed yet. It was introduced in March, 2018 without any further action.

President Barack Obama responds to the 7 weakest excuses for not voting. Get your voting info at Vote.org. We've all heard it before. "I don't care about politics" or "I can't relate to any of the candidates". These are NOT valid excuses to stay home and not vote.
