TITLE
RESOLUTION URGING THE MIAMI-DADE COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD TO IMPLEMENT A UNIFORM STANDARD FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SCHOOL BOARDíS VOTER REGISTRATION PROGRAM

BODY

WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade County Equal Opportunity Board has passed a resolution requesting that the Board of County Commissioners urge the Miami-Dade County School Board to create uniform standards in conducting voter registration drives due to the lack of uniform treatment which may foster an atmosphere that leads to disparate impact on minority communities; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County schools conducted a voluntary voter registration drive in the fall of 2007 in an effort to afford students the opportunity to participate in the January Presidential Preference Primary; and
WHEREAS, the School Boardís voter registration program is implemented on a system based on administrative discretion, where School Board administrators may or may not choose to participate in the program; and
WHEREAS, the requirement of a uniform standard in the implementation of the Miami-Dade County School Boardís voter registration program in high schools will benefit all students who wish to exercise their right to vote; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board urges the Miami-Dade County School Board to establish a uniform, equitable voter registration program that requires voters registration drives in all schools at least once a year to provide all voting age high school students in Miami-Dade County the opportunity to register to vote. The Clerk of the Board is hereby directed to transmit a certified copy of this resolution to the Chair and Members of the Miami-Dade County School Board.
