So it's a normal and important part of their lives, not a mystery.
My grandparents is 5, her parents have been bringing her to vote since she was 1 month old. I always brought her mom to the polls. It's tradition.
We tell parents that engaging their future voters with the election process can break a generational cycle of not voting, and undo a lot of myths about the impact of our votes.🗳
Because I don’t want them to ever think twice about whether or not to vote. It should be a no-brainer in their book!
My parents took me every time they went so it became a normal part of life. When I turned 18 I registered and voted in tbe following election. I want my kids to do the same so I take them every time. Even though it would be so much easier to go while they're in school, if I don't set the example, who will?
Train the child young in the way they should go. 🙌👏
Used to for years! They all can vote now. And they know they have to, bc they were brought to poles!

They learn from an early age that it is a part of their community responsibility
I bring my son because its a right people died for us to have. I want himbto know how important it is to make tour voice heard after so many people sacrificed their life for it.
I brought my kids with me to the polls for every single election from the time they were born till they went off to college. We consider it a near-sacred duty. Voting in every election honors those who have, and still do, risk or even sacrifice their lives for the right, and it recognizes that all of us are responsible for the world around us.
My grandfather hung signs for JFK and told us “We must never forget our part in electing people that know who we are and where we are.” My grandmother, a German immigrant, (1923) took me to vote every time the polls were open, “Never forget how important you are as a citizen, you must vote.” We took our three children and told them the same thing! They are registered and they vote!!! ❤️
Actually because it was necessary. I worked all day, picked the girls up, and stopped to vote on the way home. They learned that voting every time is what you do.
I do 🙋🏼♀️
This year was the first time my 15 year old didn’t come with me. “Too much homework. I’ll go with you next year.” Elections are all about the future- their future. They need to know we take it seriously.
Yes always brought my kids and now my college girl a voter herself. It teaches them that this is what adults do and this is how it’s done.
I always bring mine! I find it important that they see the process and make it a regular routine.
