People have been lining up to try the new chicken sandwich at Popeye’s and one teen in North Carolina found a way to make good use of their time waiting by helping his community. David Ledbetter says he registered 16 people to vote at a Popeye’s restaurant in Charlotte over the weekend.
The 17-year-old isn’t even old enough to vote himself, but he says he handed out sample ballots and voter registration forms to folks waiting in line. Ledbetter came up with the idea with local attorney Stephanie Sneed, who’s running for the local school board.
"I like engaging with the community and I have aspirations with helping people and making society better as a whole," the teen explains.
