Board of Elections Launches Recruitment for the "Future Vote" Program

The Montgomery County Board of Elections is seeking school-age students, grades 6-12, to participate in its "Future Vote" Program. Future Vote students will serve as Election Day student aides during the 2016 Presidential General Election on Tuesday, November 8.  There are also opportunities for students to assist the Board of Elections with a variety of activities before Election Day.

Students and their guardians must attend mandatory training to participate in the Future Vote Program and, if applicable, students will receive Student Service Learning (SSL) credits.  Most students work in precincts near their home. This initiative combines civic participation and the opportunity to observe democracy in action.
The Future Vote Program is available to all Montgomery County students within public, private, independent, religious or home-schools.  U.S. citizenship is not a pre-requisite and students with bilingual and American Sign Language skills are encouraged to apply.

In the 2012 Presidential Election, more than two thousand Montgomery County students participated in the Future Vote Program, including 473 students with bilingual skills and 15 students who were available at polling places to assist voters using American Sign Language.
