About Us

Kids Voting St. Paul is a community-based, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to empower students in Saint Paul with the skills and confidence to embrace civic involvement and become active citizens as adults. We want all K-12 students to become educated, engaged voters.

 

Why Kids Voting?

The need for Kids Voting is evidenced by the growing trend of declining levels of civic engagement and apathetic attitudes towards voting. Today, 50% of young people grow up in non-voting households. Only about half of eligible voters participate in Presidential elections and about one-third participate in local elections. The figures are even lower for minority populations and young adults
