Kids Voting is a nonpartisan program that emphasizes civic
engagement by preparing students to be educated, active voters.
Students take part in learn-by-doing Kids Voting classroom activities
that introduce them to the concepts of citizenship. Kids Voting
combines classroom instruction and family dialogue with an authentic
voting experience that reflects the official voting process. Students
have an opportunity to cast a ballot that replicates the adult ballot—voting
on the same issue as adults at the official polling places. Communities
that wish to participate must create a community steering committee
that will help raise funds to support a local Kids Voting program.
