Governor’s High School Voter Registration Challenge

HS Voter Registration

While this program is focused on High School students, the LWV-VA is providing a list of specific links for Virginia High Schools, Community Colleges, Colleges, Homeschoolers, and even those not in any school.

Learn more about the Governor’s Challenge and what awards your school can earn at

You will also find the links to use to register there so that your school will be recognized.

If you are 17 years of age and will turn 18 by the next general election, you can register to vote now IF you

  • are a United States citizen.
  • are a resident of Virginia.
  • have had voting rights restored if you have ever been convicted of a felony.
  • have had capacity restored if have ever been declared mentally incapacitated in a Circuit Court.

Seventeen-year-olds who are registered to vote can also vote in primary AND special elections in Virginia! (You must turn 18 by the date of a special election in order to vote in that election.)
