About Kids Voting

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 Leon County 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 Leon County volunteers staff the polling precincts of Leon County and the youth in our county come out to vote with their parents.­ Kid's Voting Leon County currently has approximately 40,000 students eligible to vote in over 100 precincts.­ The students are able to cast their official Kids Voting ballots at a separate Kids Voting precincts 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.
