BHSEC Students Phone Bank for Obama
On Tuesday, October 16, the Bard High School Early College Young Democrats held their second of two phone banks to re-elect President Barack Obama. The event attracted participation from around 25 members and other student volunteers, and was organized by BYD club leaders, Liam Duffy and Everett Pelzman, a YDA High School Summer Leadership Academy graduate! High school YDs also made news this month when youth voter registration initiatives opened in North Carolina, allowing students to pre-register to vote before turning eighteen. All inspiring examples of young Democrats taking voting and election politics into their own hands.
