Voting Rights

Full Video Transcript

One of our most important civil rights is the right to vote. In order to be eligible to vote, you must be a United States citizen, be over the age 18 by the date of the general election, and in many states you must not have been convicted of a felony. You can’t be denied the right to vote on the basis of sex, race, religion, disability, national origin or sexual orientation or even simply because you do not speak English or you do not know how to read or write. Exercise this important civic right. Simply register to vote at your local election office or perhaps even at your local DMV office, or when you renew your driver’s license, then it’s just the hard part that’s left figuring out what to vote for.
