FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Broward’s Supervisor of Elections will kick off their annual High School Voter Registration Drive on Monday.

Broward County election officials are scheduled to visit over 40 local high schools during the course of the week to assist qualified students in the sign up process.

All Broward County high schools will have the opportunity to register their students who meet the qualifications to become registered voters.

The school with the most registered students will receive the coveted brass trophy, banners and certificates. To date, J.P. Taravella High School holds the record with over 1,000 new students registered.

High School students who are 18 years old are eligible to register to vote. Students who are 16 and 17 years of age may pre-register. The goal is to register 8,500 students in time for the 2014 Midterm Election.
