Jennifer Antunez can’t vote in this country now and might never be able to. Nonetheless, the 16-year-old undocumented high school junior at San Diego’s King-Chavez High School spent last Sunday afternoon on a street corner helping others register to vote. “I’m not a U.S. citizen, so I can’t vote,” said Antunez, who was brought to this country from the Mexican city of Cuernavaca as a 6-year-old and is registered in the U.S. government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. “But I do know that every vote does count and that voting is a privilege — I want to help people do their civic duty.”
