  • [News-Miner] Nonprofit, nonpartisan program educates kids about voting | October 26, 2020

    Kids can participate in the upcoming election, thanks to Kids Voting North Alaska. This nonprofit group is a nonpartisan, grassroots-driven voter education program committed to creating lifelong voting habits in children, increasing family communications about citizenship and encouraging greater adult voter turnout. It is an affiliate of Kids Voting USA. The longtime program allows students to vote in mock elections — presidential, general or local. It also has grown to provide avenues for civic engagement, including contests, scholarships and a teacher mini-grant program to promote voting literacy in classrooms.
