The Plymouth Board of Selectmen issue a proclamation commending the efforts of “Kids Voting”.
At the Selectmen’s meeting Tuesday night, Kathy Babini, Social Studies Coordinator for the Plymouth Public Schools, accepted the proclamation from Selectman Chairman Matt Muratore:
“It’s a certificate in recognition of Kids Voting. Here in Plymouth, we’ve been a Kids Voting community since 1996 for all the major presidential elections—to be able to have the kids go to the precinct with their parents or an adult on election day to vote.”
In addition to the candidate’s names, the Kids Voting ballot shows pictures of the candidates:
“The students go to the polls, their own precinct; they sign in and then they go in with their Kids Voting ballot and then we tally up all their ballots after the fact. We also have the Phyllis Hughes trophy, which goes to the school with the highest percentage of voters.”
