Extension’s Kids Voting Durham Program Invites Students to Get Involved in 2017 Local Elections

— Written By

In Fall 2017, Kids Voting Durham will engage Durham’s K-12 students in our local City Council and Mayor elections. Durham youth can vote, just like adults, for 3 Durham city council members and mayor in the November election. Students can cast their ballot in their school, at a polling site on Election Day, November 7, with their families, or online at www.kidsvotingdurham.org. Schools can contact Kids Voting Durham Program Coordinator Carolyn Kreuger at info@kidsvotingdurham.org or 919-560-7321 to participate at no cost. Volunteers are needed to help run polling sites on Election Day and during early voting. Resources for classrooms and families to discuss current elections are available as well. Kids Voting Durham is a program of Durham County Cooperative Extension.
