Kids Voting is a nonpartisan organization in Durham, NC that works to involve young people in the voting process. One way they do that is by setting up an authentic voting experience in classrooms in which students vote for the same candidates and issues as adults on election day. Through this participation kids gain an understanding and appreciation of the voting process and begin to understand the power of their own vote.
Behind the scenes MI partners with Kids Voting by designing the ballots and providing a scanner to count the ballots. Over the course of 19 elections we’ve tabulated over 150,000 student ballots. MI is proud to support Kids Voting!
