I'm 11 and I'm going to the polls on Nov. 5 to vote in the Kids Vote. Kids Vote is a program that is trying to secure the future democracy by educating and involving youth in the election process. Kids voting increased adult voter turnout by 3 percent. Kids Vote is a way to educate children to learn the importance of voting. Kids Vote allows children to vote on the people running for election and the same issues as the adults like the Legislature move and money for new schools.
