Maybe you are living away from home for the first time, in a new state, college, or super busy, but if you are 18, or will be by November 2022, and you’re a U.S. citizen, you can vote.
But first, you have to register to vote.
Each state has different deadlines. Depending on where you live, you can register online at vote.gov or by mail, at your local election office, or the department of motor vehicles.
Registering to vote is also a good story. In fact, the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program wants to hear your registration story.
In this challenge you’ll record a short video for social media documenting your registration story. It is up to you to be as creative as you want with the video. You may choose to go the traditional route of filming with your phone and edit in the social media app or use a DSLR to edit in post production.
Here are some suggestions, but take the ideas and make them your own!
