The Bar Foundation offers a new LRE program – Kids Voting – Nebraska ABC. The objectives of this educational program are to create lifelong voting habits in children, increasing family communication about citizenship and increasing adult voter turnout. There are five key components: 1) offer curricula for K-12 students, 2) offer mock election processes by paper ballots or electronic voting, 3) activities to involve families, 4) educator support and resources and 5) research on impact and effectiveness.
