May 14, Pontiac, MI - Lisa Brown, Oakland County Clerk/Register of Deeds, continues making voter registration as easy as possible for residents, including high school students.
The Oakland County Clerk's office will host a voter registration drive at Andover High School in Bloomfield Hills on May 20 from 10:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
"I encourage teens to begin voting as soon as they're eligible, to take full advantage of this fundamental right of American citizenship," said Brown. "By bringing registration services to the schools, we're helping to make young people's voices heard."
Lisa Brown, along with Janet Roncelli, Bloomfield Township Clerk and Amy Burton, Bloomfield Hills Clerk, will be attending the event, which is being held during the lunch hour at Andover High School, located at 4200 Andover Rd. in Bloomfield Hills.
Students who are 17-and-a-half years old or older can register, and should bring a driver's license or other state-issued identification with them to complete their voter registration.
If you don't register to vote in person, then the first time you vote must be in person," said Brown. "That means an 18-year-old who is away at college can't vote by absentee ballot. I want to do everything I can to make it easier for people to vote."
