Burlington

Children can go to the polls too

Student Vote, a program in which Burlington students under the age of 18 are invited to accompany their parents to the polls and cast facsimile ballots, will be offered again this year. Each participating student will be assigned a precinct where they can vote for various town offices. Like adult voters, they will check in with the election clerk, use regulation ballots, and insert their ballots in a regulation voting machine. The final student vote tally will be tabulated and recorded next to the town’s official election results, and will be listed in the annual town report. Now in its 17th year, Student Vote is intended to teach students about the voting process and encourage them to participate as adults. It takes place only during the annual town election.
