Today, I became a Democrat

I'm a 17 year old high school senior in New Milford, CT, and today, I became a registered Democrat.  One of the social studies teachers brings in the registrar of voters every spring, to make it easy for students to register.  As they swore me in as a voter, I felt a great sense of pride and honor, knowing that this is what the nation was founded on, and I will strive to keep that dream alive.  I saw hundreds of my fellow students wearing "I registered to Vote Today" stickers in the hallways, and I know, that if we choose to make our voices heard through the ballot box, we will be a force to reckon with.

Re: Today, I became a Democrat

Congratulations.  That's also a great idea that your school has to getting students registered.  

Now that you're a registered Democrat, don't be afraid to take it a step further and become a Democratic activist.  Most current activists are thrilled when they see someone your age become involved.  So check out a DFA meeting or something if you have a chance.    

But schoolwork still should come first.

haha, well, I have about 3 weeks left of high school, but I do plan to work for the Lamont campaign over the summer, before heading off to college.
