Welcome to Students Voting MN - Shakopee
Our mission is to prepare young people to be educated, engaged voters; support educators in teaching the rights and responsibilities of citizenship; stimulate political awareness among youth and adults; and increase participation in our democracy.
Our program is based on studies that show:
a) students who get comfortable with the mechanics of the polling place and how to vote are more likely to vote when they are eligible, and
b) voters who vote for the first time when they become eligible are more likely to make voting a lifelong habit
