Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry in 2019 launched the Student Ambassador Program, a major outreach designed to involve high school students in our election process. The program trains high school juniors and seniors to register classmates to vote and encourages them to hold non-partisan voter registration drives at their schools. Student Ambassadors are also encouraged to recruit qualifying students to serve as Election Night workers or as Student Election Judges on Election Day.
