Kids in the Game is excited to advocate for American’s right to vote in the 2020 elections. As a youth development organization, we believe in the collective power we all have to make a difference. We encourage our kids to use their voice and their actions to create a better world, and it is our responsibility as adults to do the same on their behalf. 

We will be offering limited FREE ($100 value) spots at our Remote Learning Centers on Nov. 3rd allowing you a place for your child to go while you exercise your right to vote!  Priority will be given to essential workers but all families are welcome to apply.

“I say from time to time that the vote is precious. It’s almost sacred. It is the most powerful, nonviolent tool or instrument that we have in a democratic society. And we must use it.” John Lewis

    Completed absentee ballots must be received by mail postmarked on election Day and received 7 days after Election Day. Voted ballots can also be turned in by hand on election day.

  • Option 2: Early voting between October 24th and November 1st

    Why vote early? Voting early reduces lines and crowds on Election Day. Also, it offers greater flexibility and peace of mind for you, the voter.
     
  • Option 3: Vote on Voting Day: Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020

    To vote at the polls, the Board of Elections Borough Offices is offering extended hours leading up to Election Day (between October 24th and November 1st) allowing you to cast your vote in advance.

    You can also vote on Election Day Tuesday, November 3rd at the same locations.
