Momilani students engage in civic participation through WeVoteHawaii During the recent election season, Momilani students practiced their civic responsibility by voting online at WeVoteHawaii.org. This unique program prepares youth for a lifetime of voting and encourages adult voter participation. Students discussed the importance of civic responsibility, and were instructed to log on and enter their precinct and district number, receiving virtually the same ballot as their parents receive at the polls. This program allows students to experience democracy first hand and we hope it encouraged dialogue at home and with friends about the importance of civic education. For more information on this program, please visit http://www.wevotehawaii.org/
