This hasn’t been the most kid-friendly election cycle, but one thing that is kid friendly is voting. Around the country, parents are taking their kids to share in one of our most fundamental rights: Voting. Check out amazing #familyvote photos coming in here.
Inspire Other Parents to Vote with a #FamilyVote SelfieHelp spark a new tradition in your social network: Show the world how powerful voting is with your #FamilyVote selfie.
Step 1: Vote & Take a Pic
- Take your kids to the polls and take a picture OUTSIDE with your “I Voted” stickers (Find your polling place here or here.)
- If you can’t vote with your kids, bring home the “I Voted” stickers and take your pic together
- Early voting and mail ballots count, too! Take an action shot when you put it in the mail.
Step 2: Share & Inspire Others!
- Post your picture to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, with #FamilyVote
- Tag your friends and encourage them to share their own #FamilyVote pics
Involving your kids in voting shows them what democracy is all about, and it helps show our country that families matter and have a powerful voice.
