Student Days at the Polls

Here's your chance to cast a vote in a real polling place

Thanks to our partnership with the Board of Elections and local schools, K-12 students have a chance to experience democracy in action. This is a great civic learning opportunity! This fall, visit our Election 2016 page to learn what's on the ballot and about voting online, at school, at a polling place, or volunteering.

Student voting stations at the polls

All students have the opportunity to vote! Just visit a designated polling place on a Student Voting Day - parents do not need to be registed there for their children to participate. Sites are conveniently located across the community. (Please note: check before voting; this list is subject to change.) Look for GenerationNation's student voting booth, hosted by volunteers.
