MI Vote Matters
NewDEAL Leader Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, celebrated National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday with the launch of the MI Vote Matters High School Voter Registration Challenge. This new initiative encourages eligible high school seniors to exercise their rights by registering or pre-registering to vote. Another NewDEALer, Alex Padilla, had significant success in registering and pre-registering 400,000 young voters with a similar program when he was Secretary of State in California, before being appointed to the U.S. Senate.
