Pitt schools register students before deadline

GREENVILLE, N.C. -

(AP) - Pitt County schools are working to get students registered to vote before a change in state law takes effect Sept. 1.

The Daily Reflector of Greenville reported (http://bit.ly/1dtLw4y) that schools conducted the voter registration effort among 16- and 17-year old students.

The new law limits registration to those 17 who will turn 18 by the next general election.

Teachers spent 20 minutes during an advisory period Tuesday giving a brief lecture on changes to election laws.

Most 16- and 17-year-olds register to vote when they apply for a driver's license.

After Sept. 1, 16-year-olds no longer can pre-register and 17-year-olds can only register and vote in a primary if they will be 18 before the next general election.
