Are You Ready for the Upcoming Election?
There has been a lot of hubbub in the news recently about the democratic debates, but the real focus should be on the upcoming Durham City Council and Mayoral election on November 5th! Take our short Durham City government quiz below to test your knowledge on Durham City government below!! Once you get your results, scroll down to see how you can get more involved with Kids Voting Durham during the upcoming election!
Whether you’re able to vote in the election or not, there are lots of ways that YOU can get involved!
VOTE~ If you are under 18, you can also vote in the upcoming election at one of the Kids Voting Durham school, precinct, or community sites, including our new pop-ups at places like Locopops and monuts. The KVD website will list locations and times closer to elections. (You can also vote if you are 18 or older: to find your polling place, check with the DCo Board of Elections!)
Take the Youth Survey on Durham~ Over 22% of the Durham population are youth under 18. City Council, the Mayor, and other decision-makers should know what you think and your ideas for an even better Durham.
