Separately, League of Women Voters of Wellesley members Skye Jacobs (Wellesley High ’24, Town Meeting member) and Ivy Wang (Wellesley High ’24, Town Meeting member) organized a voter registration event at Wellesley High School. Two of the first-time voters will be turning 18 only a few days before the election.
One student said, “I’m too young to vote but my parents rely on me to research the candidates for them.”
