The My Voice National Student Mock Election gives students across the country the opportunity to cast their votes for candidates in both the federal and state elections and to talk about the issues they care about this fall and beyond.
This program, a digital initiative of the Pearson Foundation, builds on the 30-year history of the National Student/Parent Mock Election and My Voice, the leading program in student voice. More than 50 million young voters have participated while learning about the importance of using their own voices to share their perspectives on important issues.
National student voting begins on Oct. 25 and culminates on the National Mock Election day, Nov. 1, in advance of the nation’s election. For the first time this year, the National Student Mock Election will take place entirely online, as will student polling on national topics, social issues, education and local communities.
Students, teachers and parents are encouraged to register their schools to take part at www.nationalmockelection.org/.
Teachers are encouraged to use the free materials and curriculum developed for the program to create thoughtful lessons leading up to and around the upcoming election of the president, U.S. senators and representatives and state governors.
