Student Vote

November 1, 2018

On Thursday, November 1st, Lincoln and surrounding area students in 4th through 12th grade will have the chance to cast their ballot in a mock election through Student Vote! KFOR and KFRX work with Lincoln Public Schools to hold an on-line election. All votes are tallied electronically.

Student Vote was created to teach kids the importance of being educated voters and to enjoy the process. Students involved are more likely to be active citizens and life-long voters.

Below is the 2018 Student Voter’s Guide.

For more information on the candidates, a link to each of their websites is listed under the guide, along with a sample ballot.
