League of Women Voters, Delta Sigma Theta to register young voters


A county-wide high school voter registration drive will take place for one day at each high school from Sept. 24 through Oct. 3, 2018, during lunch time at area high schools. The League of Women Voters of Knoxville/Knox County and Delta Sigma Theta sorority will provide two trained volunteers per school in the cafeterias to register eligible students using the state’s new online system. Faculty and staff may register, too.
