McHenry High School’s activism club is hosting a voter registration drive at Upper Campus on Feb. 1 and 2 during AIM. The drive is open to all students and teachers who will be at least 18 years old by Nov. 8, 2022. 

In order to register, students need two forms of identification, one of which must include the student’s address. These forms of ID tend to be a regular student ID card and a state ID, such as a driver’s license. 

For students who are interested, the drive will take place during AIM outside of the cafeteria. Eligible students can register in order to vote in the primary elections held in June of this year, as well as future elections.

Stacy Rockweiler, the advisor of the Activism club and organizer of the voter registration drive, says she hopes to provide easy access to the democratic process and register as many students as possible during this drive. 

“There is a lot going on in the news with voter suppression and voting laws,” Rockweiler states. “We thought this was the perfect time to show that voting should be easy. We believe that the right to vote is essential to our freedoms, and want to encourage all students to use their vote to bring about the change they want to see.” 

Any additional questions can be directed to Stacy Rockweiler in room 338 at the Upper Campus or to her email, [email protected].
