Teens Ready to Vote

Here at Sno-Isle Libraries we believe democracy works best when everyone participates. Even if you can't vote until you turn 18, you can prepare to become a confident, informed voter.

Voting Counts!

We want to hear why you feel Voting Counts! Come into any Sno-Isle Library to take part, or download a Voting Counts sign here. Write down why you believe Voting Counts, or something important to you that is impacted by voting. Get a friend or library staff member to take your photo (selfies are a-ok, too). Share with @snoisleteens on social media with the hashtags #votingcounts #youcount, or send to teens@sno-isle.org. Our favorites will be featured right here on the Ready to Vote page and shared on Facebook.
