Kids Voting Leon County
Kids Voting Leon County is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots organization, which facilitates voter education and a real-life voting experience for students from kindergarten through twelfth grade on Election Day. Throughout the year, Kids Voting works with all of the schools within Leon County by providing a civics and election-based curriculum that focuses on the importance of being informed and the responsibilities of voting.
On Election Day, local Kids Voting volunteers staff the polling precincts of Leon County and the youth in our county come out to vote with their parents. The students are able to cast their official Kids Voting ballots at a separate Kids Voting precinct located within their parents’ voting precinct. Their votes are tallied, and the results are provided to the entire community just like the adult election results.
In a time when increasing numbers of young people are losing interest in Election Day, you can reinvigorate our republic by investing in a program that excites our youth to become informed, active contributors to the voting process.
