Kids Voting

  • 2022 Kids Voting
    Ballots Open October 31 - November 8, 2022

    Kids Voting USA is a nonpartisan, grassroots-driven voter education program committed to creating lifelong voting habits in children, increasing family communication about citizenship, and encouraging greater adult voter turnout.  K-12 students will have the opportunity to cast their own ballots in a mock election. 



Kids Voting Contest

  • The Alaska Division of Election has opened their ranked choice practice voting, with a selection of student artwork that they will use for their "I voted" stickers. Your school and or classroom(s) can help choose the winning artwork and get a better grasp on ranked choice voting, and it's also an activity that families can participate in at home. Ranked votes on sticker art may be cast until April 11, 2022.

    To try this out, go to: https://elections.alaska.gov/

    Please spread the word, I believe the AK Division of Elections has done a great job in creating this practice activity. Also, look for the Spring Liaison Letter and Links that will be coming out soon.

    Sincerely,
