SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

“I Voted” stickers will be proudly worn by children a week before the nation votes thanks to a nationwide mock election event.

Millions of elementary school students all around the country will get to cast their “vote” for the next U.S. president through the Every Kid Votes event.

Every Kid Votes, a nationwide mock election program for elementary school students, will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at thousands of participating schools, after a week-long absentee voting period. The real-time results will be available online at www.studiesweekly.com/vote.

During the last Every Kid Votes event in 2008, over 6 million students voted, which accurately predicted the next president.

“If students ‘vote‘ every four years as part of their education, they'll be more likely to vote as adults,” said Ed Rickers, president of Studies Weekly, sponsor of the Every Kid Votes event.

Each child receives an “I Voted“ sticker and their schools receive educational packets for additional learning.

“This is a great opportunity for participating schools to teach and practice informed voting—the most basic and essential act of citizenry,” Rickers said.
