The push is on to get 16- and 17-year-olds pre-registered to vote.
That push came to Reseda High School on Monday, where state leaders set in motion Voter Education Week.
The goal? To get young people thinking about what roles they play in who gets elected, so when they’re old enough to vote they’ll be more empowered and engaged enough to do it.
Eighteen- to 25-year-olds are the largest block of voters in the state and yet the smallest in terms of turnout, along with the working class and low-income individuals, according to state officials.
