Kids Voting Initiative Returning For 2016 Election
Mayor Emily Larson, school officials and community organizations announced the return Tuesday.
This year when Duluth citizens head to the polls, they can do so with their children. Mayor Emily Larson, school officials and community organizations announced the return of Kids voting this cycle.
After a six-year hiatus, the program is offering kids K–12 the opportunity to cast a kids ballot come election day.
The polls will open from 3 to 8 and volunteers will be present to help kids through the process and listen to their thoughts.
“Sometimes kids say things that are really serious, like no more guns, no more weapons, no more bad people, no more things that make their community feel bad,” said Larson.
Kids Voting Duluth is seeking volunteers, if you are interested in volunteering at the kids polls you can sign up online at bit.ly/KVDuluthVolunteer .
