What makes the Kids Vote 2016 program unique is the authentic voting experience that mirrors the official voting process. Kids "go to the polls" at their schools on Election Day and cast their ballots. Volunteers plan and implement the Kids Voting process for each election and they also run the Kids Voting booths at on Election Day. Volunteers help the children sign-in when they arrive, give them their special Kids Voting ballots, and assist them with voting.
