Hayfield Secondary School Wins 2019 FCPS High School Voter Registration Challenge Trophy

Hayfield Secondary School won the trophy for the highest percentage of registered eligible seniors for the second year in a row.

Hayfield registered over 85 percent of the eligible members of their senior class to vote!

How is it possible to be so successful? It all has to do with the Hayfield Social Studies Team and the government teachers, including Mr. Busch, Ms. Feilen, Ms. Johnson, and Ms. Kimak, led by the Social Studies Department Chair, Mr Zywiol. Mr. Zywiol brought enthusiasm, energy and zest to all aspects of voter registration and education. Congratulations to Hayfield

The FCPS School Board passed our FCPS High School Voter Registration Resolution unanimously. Read the resolution. All the schools that register 50 percent of their senior class will be honored at the School Board meeting on Thursday, May 23rd at 7 p.m. at Luther Jackson Middle School.

What We Do

Action & Advocacy

We take action on an issue or advocate for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.

Voter Education

We make voting easier by preparing and distributing useful publications. Publications are made available to the public in our libraries, community centers and many other sites. Check out VOTE411 our easy to use online 1-stop shop voters' guide.

Forums

We organize Candidate Forums prior to elections to give voters opportunities to learn more about the candidates. We also organize issue forums to dive into complex issues like redistricting and voting rights for fact-based discussions and be better informed citizens in our democracy.
