I Voted! Student Election
Experience elections with GenerationNation’s Student Election!
Still known to many as Kids Voting, the student election 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. Since the program was launched in Charlotte in 1992, hundreds of thousands of students have participated.
Every year, each student has the exciting opportunity to experience elections! Students in kindergarten through high school participate in a variety of ways, including:
- Learning about candidates, issues, and democracy
- Casting a student vote
- Visiting and volunteering in community polling sites
- Partnering with a school or youth organization to operate a student voting booth – a great service-learning opportunity!
Election results are counted and shared after Election Day.
