Super Tuesday: Vote and Talk About It!

vote-smart-button.jpgI think it is so important to get young people involved in politics. Many of the teens I work with are apathetic to current news and politics. This year, more than ever, it is important for adolescents to be knowledgeable about what is going on in our elections.

So, please, please, vote today and talk to your kids about the fact that you voted! Tell them how lucky we are to have this right, how you made your choices. Look at the election pamphlet with them and ask them what they think about the candidates and/or propositions in your state.

Last week I also posted this article about how to appeal to teens using their tools:
