Secretary of State Pate to Present Voter Award to Charles City High Schools

Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate will present the 2021 Carrie Chapman Catt Award to Charles City High School and Carrie Lane High School Tuesday morning. The award goes to any school that registers at least 90% of eligible students to vote.

In Iowa, a 17-year-old can register to vote if he or she will be the legal voting age of 18 at the time of the next election. This is the first time each school has earned the Carrie Chapman Catt Award, named after the famous Iowan who was instrumental in securing passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women access to the ballot box 100 years ago.
