As college students head to campus this fall, there is one more item to add to the back-to-school list: Talk with your student about their voting plan.
This week my husband and I dropped our daughter off at college. Many conversations have taken place in our house with our 18-year-old daughter about the big issues she may face during her college years. Included in those: drugs, alcohol, sex, and harassment, just to name a few.
One more, her voting plan.
The same daughter recently said to me, “Mom, you had more rights than I did when you were my age.” She is correct in her assessment. I went on to tell her that the only way to reverse these trends is to get out and vote.
