Tuesday, Oct. 2 will be "Democracy Day" at Waubonsie Valley High School.

Among the activities planned with just five week's before the 2012 Presidential Election, Waubonsie Valley students will be able to an early word in with their voice and their vote.

Voter Registration for Staff, Student and Residents at High School

All junior or senior Social studies classes will be able to cast their ball in the Illinois Student Vote Mock Election.

The DuPage County Election Commission and League of Women Voters will be here to help run our election in the LMC during lunch hours (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th periods). Junior and Senior social studies classes can come down during those periods, or promote the vote to your students to come up and vote during their lunch hours.

Also, on Tuesday voter registrars will be here with the McCormick Foundation Freedom Bus to register anyone that will be 18 by Nov. 6, 2012 to vote. Two forms of ID (ie: driver's license, school ID) are needed. Students, staff and residents are invited to register to vote. MAKE YOUR VOICE COUNT, REGISTER TO VOTE!

Youth & Government students will also be collecting coins in an election-themed "penny war" between President Obama and Mitt Romney buckets. The change raised will be donated to the Robbie Gould Kicking Hunger Campaign.

In 2008, Waubonsie Valley Youth & Government "Presidental Penny War" raised about $200 for Hesed House.
