The midcoast chapter of League of Women Voters is carrying out voter registration work locally to help high school and college students register to vote for the first time. Any interested student who is a U.S. citizen and is a Maine resident who is or will be 18 years old by November 6, 2018, is eligible to register to vote.  

League volunteers are working with student peers and will be at Oceanside High School in Rockland on Wednesday, March 14; at Camden Hills Regional High School in Rockport on Friday, March 23; and at University College in Rockland on Tuesday, March 27, and Wednesday, March 28. 

The League has worked for over 90 years to encourage all Americans to take charge of their democracy, and a key element has been voter registration and education to inspire lifelong voting habits. For more information about the registration drives, visit www.lwvme.org.
