Nineteen high school seniors who have never had a say in politics will now be able to vote this November. They registered to vote at Tuesday's Rock the Vote rally in North Little Rock.
In 2008, President Barack Obama dominated the youth vote, but Rock the Vote is the country's largest non-partisan voter registration group.
Tuesday, teens rocked the Lakewood Village amphitheater, representing five high schools and a generation of voters highly sought after by politicians.
"Have you been involved in student government before?" asked FOX16's Kelly Dudzik.
"I think I was like my sixth grade home room representative, but besides that, no," replied Conner Bishop.
But right now, Bishop is volunteering for a state senate campaign to get a real taste of politics. The high school senior also helped organize the Rock the Vote rally.
"I decided this would be a good, easy, fun way to get a lot of people coming out and just get registered really easy," he said.
Registering to vote is really easy. You just have to fill out one form, fold it in half, and drop it in the mail.
Plus, Rock the Vote added the incentive of winning a chance to grab some free cash. Tyler Newson walked away with $18.00 and registered to vote before the rally.
"When you vote, you're electing leaders. If you don't know anything about that, you don't have an impact on it. If you don't like something, you can't do anything about it if you're not voting," says Newson.
This fall while Newson will go to the Berkeley College of Music, Bishop plans on going to Rhodes in Memphis and majoring in political science.
"I know it's cheesy, but we are the future, and I really don't think that there's enough involvement in the youth right now, and this is going to be our world that we're coming into and we kind of need a say in what we want being done," says Bishop.
Besides voter registration drives, the group also has a strong social media presence on Twitter, Facebook and Myspace.
