Kids Vote, Too!
November 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
The 2018 United States Senate election in New Jersey will take place on November 6, 2018, in order to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the state of New Jersey.
Many scholars think of voter turnout as habitual behavior that can be learned. Start nurturing lifelong voting habits in your child. We encourage children of all ages to head to Kennedy Library on Election Day between 10AM-8PM to step into our voting booth and cast their vote in our fictional character election! We’ll also have a ballot box at Westergard Library. Voting activities help to encourage family discussions about citizenship and may lead to greater adult voter turnout.
Participants will get an “I voted” sticker and a mini-flag!
The 2018 Character Candidates for Senate:
- Lucy Van Pelt
- D.W. Read
- Bilbo Baggins
- Curious George
