Kids Voting Durham empowers students to let their voices be heard through an authentic voting experience, classroom engagement and community activities.
This work is made possible thanks to partnerships with schools, teachers, elected officials, local businesses, community leaders and dedicated volunteers.
These partnerships combine with support from Durham County and Kids Voting USA to make us a cost-effective organization: We provide educational and voting experiences to over 35,000 Durham County K-12 students for less than $1 per child.

Kids Voting Durham is a project of the Durham Cooperative Extension and
an affiliate of Kids Voting North Carolina and Kids Voting USA.
