Election 2012 Results!!!

For the November 2012 Presidential Election, more than 228,000 Missouri K-12th grade students had an opportunity to vote in the Kids Voting Missouri Election

150,473 or 66% of all participating K-12 students cast ballots

For many, this was the 6th or 7th time that they participated in a Kids Voting Missouri Election.

Kids Voting Missouri is an affiliate of Kids Voting USA. The program is administered by the University of Missouri-St. Louis through its Citizenship Education Clearing House in the College of Education. Kids Voting is a grassroots, non-partisan, non-profit citizenship education program for students in grades K-12. 

Weeks before the election, students learn about becoming an informed citizen by looking at the candidates and issues for that election. Students discuss, debate, and role play. They learn about leadership, decision making, compromise, majority rule, branches/levels of government, and representative democracy.  They evaluate and analyze.  They even engage in a simulated voter registration lesson.

Then on or near Election Day, KVMO students have an opportunity to vote on many of the same candidates and issues as the adult voters. 
Kids Voting is THE most authentic youth voter education program in the country as students learn how to become informed, engaged citizens.

Shout_Out1.jpgA Huge Shout Out to all Kids Voting Missouri schools, teachers, & parents for helping our youth continue learning about responsible citizenship!!!
