Youth at the Booth  
We recruit and train high school seniors to work as precinct officials at the polls for the Franklin County Board of Elections. This real-life learning activity engages students in the election and motivates them to become lifelong voters when they reach voting age. More than 15,000 high school students have worked at the polls since 2005.

Kids Voting Where Civic Begins

We are a nonpartisan civics education organization that collaborates with educators, parents, community leaders, civic organizations, elected officials and election boards to create civic skill-building opportunities for students.

Our mission is to create lifelong, informed voters among today’s youth; support educators in teaching the rights and responsibilities of citizenship; stimulate political awareness among children and adults; and increase participation in our democracy.
