Kids Voting Election
Experience elections with GenerationNation's Kids Voting program
Kids Voting, a program of GenerationNation, offers K-12 students opportunities to learn about and get involved in elections each year though a mock vote, service-learning in polling places, student council elections, teacher curriculum and more. In Election 2012, over 100,000 Charlotte-area students participated in the presidential vote.
Every year, each student has the exciting opportunity to experience elections! Students in kindergarten through high school participate in a variety of ways, including:
- Voting online and/or at school (this is detemined by your School Representative)
- Visiting and voting in community polling sites on Election Day and during early voting
- Staffing or running a Kids Voting booth during early voting or on Election Day - a great service-learning opportunity!
Election results are counted and announced in the media and to schools after Election Day - you can see how students voted.
