FOR TEACHERS INTERESTED IN PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY
FOR THEIR STUDENTS TO VOTE CLICK HERE!
Want to part of American democracy?
It’s easy to vote online.
Let me tell you a little bit about how to do it.
First click on this link:
http://www.youthleadership.net and then click on the "Vote Here" button
The first thing you will be asked to do is type in your name and your teacher code. Put this in: NC1064-001
I’m going to be your teacher for just a couple of minutes but I promise- no homework!
They will also want to know your grade- you’ve got that covered, right? Next you will be asked to put in your Congressional District number. What, you don’t know it! Yeah, most people don’t. That is no problem -they have a place for you to look it up right there.
You put in your zip code and then maybe your address and it will give you your Congressional District number (it’s right above the picture of the representative of that district)
Once you get the number go back and enter it in the Congressional District spot.
Now, all you need to do is VOTE and submit.
I am proud of you for taking the time to voice your opinion about who should lead our country. Voting is a powerful and important thing to do.
Dear KVNC Board of Directors and Program Directors,
We are pleased to announce that we have contracted with Hunter Buxton to be our KVNC Executive Director. Hunter brings a wealth of experience with community organizations and passion for the work of Kids Voting. Her vision and interest in helping us develop our potential and breaking out of our box are qualities that will benefit Kids Voting NC long term. A brief bio follows below. Congratulations and welcome to Hunter Buxton!
We also want to thank Pat Vreeland for her role with KVNC for the past few years. Her depth of experience, dedication to Kids Voting, and ability to work in a changing environment was essential to continuing the program. We hope to recognize Pat for her service at a future meeting. Thank you Pat!
On a practical note, Hunter’s time will be somewhat limited until October due to other commitments. We are planning to use the services of a college intern to help support us through the election season this fall, so please be patient. I also realize that the KVUSA transition is happening at the same time. Please email or call me if you have questions about this process. Hunter will be reaching out to the Board and programs to let us all know about the best way to contact and communicate with her as these details about phone and email are still being worked out. Please look for information about the next Board meeting coming soon. You can reach Hunter by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are excited about our next steps together. Please feel free to share this information with your local stakeholders and let me know if you have any questions.
