Assets in Action

By Bernadette Lauritzen


Recently, I had the pleasure of going with a young person to register to vote.

How exciting to salute this rite of passage with a small celebration. How exciting that youth are excited about the process.

The League of Women Voters makes it easy for high school students to get registered, and for that we thank them.

This particular student wanted to do it at the County Clerk’s Office, in particular to have an assist from County Clerk Sharon Stover, as she has known the student since kindergarten and when she was a team leader in the Los Alamos Youth Leadership program.

The form was filled out, some questions clarified and a ceremonial photo taken to mark the day. Stover and her cheerful crew were a delight.

My hope is that local television ads for the governor and the attorney general will not derail the joy of voting, for the student. Do we really need to be running political ads in June for a November election? The answer is no.

I hate the politics of attack ads that are just legitimized bullying that kind of like celebrating the winter holidays, just seem to take place earlier and earlier.
