Voting is a fundamental right in the United States, and it's important children learn about the process long before they are legally allowed to cast an official ballot when they become adults. 

At Salt River Schools, our students participate in various election-related learning. Click here to view a video of the kind of fun we have when election season rolls around

Now through 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, youth can participate in a mock presidential election through Kids Voting Arizona* by following these simple steps:

  • Click here to access your ballot.

Over the course of the last few weeks, Salt River Schools has encouraged youth to exercise their right to vote by putting a fun (and yummy!) spin on the process. Youth voted for their favorite meal (pizza received more votes than hotdogs) and their favorite dessert (ice cream received more votes than popsicles). The winners were/will be served at our free meal distribution site (open to all youth 18 and under regardless of where they live or go to school).

PIZZA (of 117 votes, 100 were for pizza and 17 were for hotdogs) was served on October 23. ICE CREAM (of 118 votes, ice cream received 79 and popsicles received 39) will be served on Tuesday, Nov. 3!

Thanks to Kids Voting Arizona, online ballots can be accessed with any computer or mobile device. Kids Voting USA has great information for youth (and families!) about ballot initiatives, candidates, and more!

If you have trouble accessing the ballots, or have any other questions, call 480-362-2500 or email Communications@saltriverschools.org.
