Uncle Sam Welcomes You to the
Kids Voting Leon County Web Site!

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.

What We Do

Generally, the goal of Kids Voting is to promote concepts of citizenship, civic responsibility, and democracy in the students and young people.   Of course, KVLC's focus is the student population in Leon County.  Through special curriculum, family participation, and community involvement, students and young people learn the importance of being informed  and the responsibilities of voting.

To that end, Kids Voting is the only program of its kind enabling students to visit official polling sites on Election Day and cast ballots similar in content to that of the official ballot.
