The Houston Independent School District is kicking off a district-wide voter registration drive as part of the district’s ongoing efforts to teach students about their civic duties and the voting process.

HISD will host its Voter Registration Week beginning on Presidents’ Day – Monday, Feb. 20 at 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Sam Houston Math, Science and Technology Center is one of many HISD campuses that will register students to vote from Monday, Feb. 20 through Friday, Feb. 24.

Teachers across the district will assist eligible students with voter registration. In addition, pursuant to Texas state law, all HISD high school principals are designated to serve as High School Deputy Voter Registrars and are required to register eligible high school student voters by distributing voter registration forms at least twice during the school year.

All HISD high schools will have voter registration cards available on campus to encourage all eligible students to register to vote.

*The media is invited to visit a Sam Houston MSTC government class, which will be registering students to vote on Presidents’ Day.
