Celebrate early voting with a superhero themed family voting party and parade!
Your child can vote in their Halloween costume! Cool right?
Election Day is less than 2 weeks away. Millions of American adults will enter voting booths and cast their votes for the next president of the United States. Most adults may have to wait until November 8 to choose, but Charlotte area children don’t. They can make their voices heard this Saturday at the Family Early Voting Party and Parade To The Poles!
The Queen City-honored mock election is for kids too young to go to the official booths. By casting their votes kids can have their say about who should be our next president.
Their votes may not be official, but the results are often very telling. In other polls the results of the kids’ election have mirrored the national outcome all but two times: In 1948, more kids voted for Thomas E. Dewey than for Harry S. Truman, and in 1960, they selected Richard M. Nixon over John F. Kennedy.

Here’s why you should come out THIS Saturday:
- Voting Ballots for Kids
- SuperHero Capes
- To encourage citizenship
It will be at the Beatties Ford Regional Library
2412 Beatties Ford Rd. Charlotte, NC
November 05, 2016
