Election time! That means getting ready to vote. How? By studying the candidates and issues.
and link to their websites and Facebook pages, volunteer for campaigns and more.
Another way is to watch
videos of the candidates in action. We'll post more on that soon.
Teachers can use Kids Voting's classroom resources to help students develop knowledge, strategies and habits needed to be good citizens and leaders. That includes evaluating candidates, understanding government, thinking critically and making decisions. That helps on election day and every day through the year.
Students can study the Kids Voting sample ballot, and even cast a vote online (K-5 6-12).
Through Election Day, students will have the opportunity to cast votes absentee at school (check with your school's Kids Voting Representative), online (K-5 6-12) or in polling places during early voting and on Election Day.
