Juneau middle school students complete voter registration drive

Posted: Tuesday, October 08, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- They're too young to vote, but that didn't keep some Juneau middle school students from urging others to do it.

Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School students registered 159 new voters during a four-day drive to get more people involved in elections.

Teacher Jamie Marks said 60 students and about 25 adults registered voters and handed out absentee ballot forms in one of several registration drives before Sunday's midnight deadline.

Voters registered by the end of Sunday can cast ballots in the Nov. 5 statewide general election.

Ballot items include the race for governor and lieutenant governor, as well as U.S. senator and representative. Also on the ballot is a measure to move legislative sessions to the Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
