Precinct leaders coordinated and recruit volunteers for their site to assist K-12 students who come to the polls in casting a vote in the current election. This is a great activity for a group or club! Just choose one of Durham’s precincts (or let Kids Voting help you choose one) and line up enough volunteers to run the site after school until 7:30 PM or on weekend early voting. Kids Voting provides you with all the training and materials for your site so you can help Durham’s K-12 students cast their ballot on the same candidates and issues as adults. Youth 16 and older can run a site on their own and earn service hours, and younger youth can volunteer with an parent or other adult. KVD is one of the few volunteer opportunities families can do with all ages of children!
