We should encourage first-time eligible voters in high schools to register to vote. Assembly Bill 498 & SB 551 take an important step toward including young voters by requiring every school board in Wisconsin to provide eligible high school students with voter registration forms and nonpartisan voter education materials.
AB 498 was introduced on October 18, 2023, and referred to the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections. A public hearing was held on October 19, 2023.
