WESTPORT — With Election Day a few weeks away, a new voting initiative looks to educate high school students across the state on the voting process.
On Monday, Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz held a press conference with state and local officials at Staples High School to kick-off the 2020 “Mock the Vote” program. The statewide initiative will enable high school students to virtually register to vote and participate in a virtual mock election through a state website. Students’ information will be protected and won’t be shared.
