This isn't automatic voter registration like I might prefer, but it's a good start. We shouldn't place the onus of responsibility upon parents to educate and encourage their children to do their civic duty. Even in high-turnout elections only about 50% of the voting populace actually turns out and votes, so it's ridiculous to assume the majority of parents would even encourage their kids to vote when at least half don't themselves. In addition, it's ill advised to assume parents will automatically provide correct information on the voting process because, again, half of them don't even vote. Democracy only works better as voter turnout increases, so this should be a no-brainer. It's not perfect, but it's a start.
