In the spring of 2017, when I brought my newborn daughter with me to vote in a local primary election. The poll workers offered to watch her while I voted, but I made sure to bring her in with me - and have done so every time I've voted since! She will know how important it is to vote for our future, our community, and our country."

"As a child my parents always took me with them when they went to vote. Voting took place at my elementary school library and all of the poll workers were neighbors so it was an experience that felt very rooted in my immediate community. I loved the machine with its curtain, buttons, and levers and couldn’t wait to vote one day. When that day finally came, I voted in the same elementary school library on the same machines and with the same poll workers. It was a beautiful feeling of growing from an enthusiastic observer to even more enthusiastic participant."

"When I was a kid, my mom took me and my brother with her when she went to vote. We got to do Kids Vote, with our own little polling booth and full ballot and everything. It really instilled in me a comfort level with the process and a sense of civic duty at a young age."
