Kids' Election

“The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.”
–President Lyndon B. Johnson


Every four years, the Academic Booster Club offers an invaluable lesson in democracy and citizenship to students under the age of 18 by sponsoring a kids’ presidential election. Held at the Nutley Library, the election features realistic registration tables and voting booths. Results are posted the next day here and at the library.  

Here are the results of the 2016 Kids' Election! Out of 147 votes cast in the Nutley Kids' Presidential Election, 102 votes (69%) went to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, 44 votes (30%) went to Republican candidate Donald Trump, and 1 vote (1%) went to Jill Stein. Every child who participated got to sign into our voter registry book, cast a secret ballot inside a voting booth, and take home an American flag pin. We hope everyone enjoyed the chance to see what voting is like!
