Kids Voting Durham election season has started, and there are lots of great ways for everyone to be involved: Educators and youth leaders, sign your school or youth program for Kids Voting and let your students and participants vote on the same candidates and issues as adults. Kids Voting provides all the resources, materials, and training to help you give your youth a memorable and meaningful election experience. You can find out more information on our Elections page, or sign up your school or organization here. Parents, take your child to vote at an Early Voting site or a precinct on Election Day to cast their very own ballot! More details about voting sites and hours can be found on the Kids Voting Durham Events page. Whether young or an adult, educate yourself about the 2018 candidates and issues.
