Kids Voting is a private, nonpartisan nonprofit that has been involving kids in the election process in North Carolina since 1992. The whole idea is to turn voting into a habit for kids so that when their vote really counts, they're casting ballots.
"We want to get kids to create a lifetime voting habit," executive director Daintry O'Brien tells me. "To sustain democracy, you have to vote. It's your right and responsibility."
And in a few counties, including Wake and Durham, there will be some opportunities for kids to vote in precincts.
Kids can vote until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
