Kids Voting, a 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:
- Voting online and/or at school
- Visiting and voting in community polling sites on Election Day and during early voting
- Volunteer and run your own student voting booth - a great service-learning opportunity!
Election results are counted and announced in the media and to schools after Election Day - you can see how students voted.
