Kids Voting Shakopee’s Mission Statement

Our mission is to prepare young people to be educated, engaged voters; support educators in teaching the rights and responsibilities of citizenship; stimulate political awareness among youth and adults; and increase participation in our democracy.

Kids Voting At-A-Glance:

  • Voting takes place on Election Day (November 3, 2015) during non-school hours.
  • Students vote at the same location as their parents in a space designated for Kids Voting, using a ballot to cast their vote.  
  • View our helpful Voters Guide (coming soon) for an introduction to all of the candidates.
  • Bring your student to the Candidates Forum on October 19 to experience a live candidate debate.  Details are available on the What’s New page.
  • Election results will be posted here as soon as they are available following the vote.
  • Look for the parent information flyer that will go home with students the week of October 5.
