Welcomes You to the
Kids Voting Leon County (KVLC) is the local affiliate of Kids Voting USA: a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that engages students and families in voting. The program is unique because it combines dynamic classroom civic lessons with an authentic voting experience that mirrors the official voting process.
In a time when increasing numbers of young people are losing interest in Election Day, you can reinvigorate our republic by investing in a program that excites our youth to become informed, active contributors to the voting process.
