What: Help kids experience the democratic process at a young age. Answer questions and give instructions to students who are participating in “mock” voting.
Where: Minneapolis polling places. Kids Voting will be at 123 polling places across the city so we need lots of volunteers! We will do our best to schedule you at a polling place that is convenient to your home/work.
When: 3 hours on Election Day, November 4, 2014. A one hour training will take place before Election Day (Locations TBD).
Why: We believe that when kids can have an authentic voting experience at an early age, they are more likely to vote when they reach legal voting age. This is a one-time commitment but can significantly increase civic engagement in our community. Additionally, many volunteers return year after year because they really enjoy the experience.

I participated in “kids voting” as a child in school and loved it. It started what became a love affair of state and national politics that still exists today. Teaching children to be advocates – to vote for what they believe in – ROCKS!
