Did you know that the number-one reason why kids grow up to vote is family influence? Help your child become an informed, active citizen — or even a future community leader.
We Can’t Do It Without You
Studies show that parents are the most powerful reason why children grow up to be voters and informed, active citizens. When they see you voting and speaking up about community issues, they become aware of their own worth and their right to be heard.
That’s why we encourage you to discuss political candidates with your children, and to take them with you when you vote.
How You Can Help
We also invite you to be part of other Kids Voting Durham efforts. For example:
