Kids Voting Minneapolis Seek Volunteers
November 8, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Help kids experience the democratic process at a young age. Hand out ballots, explain the voting process, and distribute stickers. Kids Voting Minneapolis is a community-based, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to prepare Minneapolis’ 50,000 K-12 students to be educated, informed voters. Since 2004, in partnership with the Minneapolis Public Schools and the Minneapolis City Elections Department, Kids Voting Minneapolis (KVM) has offered Minneapolis K-12 students the opportunity to go to the polls on Election Day with their parents/guardians and vote. Students vote in their own voting booth, on their own ballot, and get an “I VOTED” sticker. This authentic voting experience furthers civic education and helps students understand the importance of voting. For this to happen, KVM needs 400 community volunteers who staff the 130 city precinct polling places to assist students as they vote. They are in need of volunteers for Nov. 8. This is a one-time volunteer opportunity plus a one hour training session. The Election Day shifts are 3 hours, 2-5 p.m. or 5-8 p.m. Anyone over 16 can volunteer. If you can help, contact the KVM Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer, at email@example.com. Volunteers can also register here: http://goo.gl/forms/
