Who says that Gen Z is lazy? A teenager from North Carolina decided to take a chance and register people to vote while they waited in line at Popeye's. According to Fox News.com, Over the weekend, David Ledbetter took to a Charlotte location of the fried chicken chain to promote voter registration ahead of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools election on Nov. 5. The young man, 17, was personally petitioning for candidate Stephanie Sneed.
That's more than what I did as a teenager. I was too busy listening to music non-stop and playing video games. The teen is not quite old enough to vote but he's committed to the cause. He stated, “I believe that it is our duty to vote as American citizens and it would be wrong not to exercise our political voice..."I decided to register people to vote after I saw there was a lack of young people politically involved." Overall, he registered 16 people! Not bad considering.
