Iowa's secretary of state has proposed conducting a major voter-registration drive for high-school students on school campuses across the state.

Secretary of State Elaine Baxter said such an effort should be part of an overall campaign to improve students' understanding of the political process and to encourage their participation. She said she would ask the state education department to assist in the effort.

"We think there is a general agreement that the best way to increase voter participation is to start early," a spokesman said.--wm
