Congressman Encourages Students to Vote

Houston, Texas: U.S. Representative Gene Green visited Galena Park High School seniors on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 to encourage them to become a part of the democratic process. “Voting is your voice in government,” Green said. “You can complain all you want. But it won't do any good unless you vote,” he added. Following Congressman Green, students were given voter registration cards along with a presentation on how to correctly fill them out. Those who knew all of their information turned them in to Mr. Aydt, a social studies teacher at Galena Park High School and a volunteer deputy voter registrar. As an official of the voting process, Mr. Aydt will take all the registration cards he receives to the appropriate location to ensure these students are registered to vote.
