House bill proposed allowing teens to preregister to vote
Parents and schools should teach children the importance of voting
I am appalled that both the media and our Legislature deem it necessary to lead our youth by the nose to the voter-registration process [“Make it easier for teens to preregister to vote,” Opinion, April 3].
Both parents and our educational system should be teaching them that voting is their heritage and a cherished right, not something you get with a driver’s license.
Perhaps those who are to lazy to appear at the clerk’s office to register shouldn’t be voting until they have an appreciation for the what it means to vote.
