Student Vote occurs every two years in Lincoln Public Schools and provides students in Grades 4-12 the opportunity to participate in a mock election. Student Vote emphasizes the importance of casting your ballot to have a voice when you reach voting age, and increases student interest in issues that are important to their community. Students who participate in these types of civics experiences are more likely to be active and informed citizens in adulthood. LPS partners with KFOR/KFRX for the event and student ballots reflect ballots from Lancaster County. The next Student Vote in Lincoln Public Schools will be on October 29, 2020. You can review the sample ballet for grades 4-8 and grades 9-12.
*In addition to Student Vote every two years, each high school holds a voter registration drive each year to register eligible voters.
