Kids Voting is a national organization that seeks to educate K – 12 students about the electoral process in the United States and provide students with an opportunity to vote in an election that closely replicates the official election.
Students learn about our electoral process in school. On Election Day they accompany their parents to the polls and vote in the Kids Voting election while their parents vote in the official election. Results of the Kids Voting election are released to the media for broadcast and publication.
Kids Voting Minnesota was organized in 1994. Today there are 45 Kids Voting programs throughout Minnesota, including programs in St. Paul and Minneapolis. In 2004 approximately 65,000 students statewide voted in a Kids Voting program, including more than 16,000 in Kids Voting St. Paul.
