Students across NC exercise their voice and their vote on EdNC’s First Vote NC platform

Today is Election Day!

High school students across North Carolina will exercise their voices today by casting ballots using the First Vote NC election simulation platform.

Sponsored by the State Employees Credit Union Foundation, EducationNC’s national award winning program offers students the opportunity to participate in an online, simulated election, authentic down to the customized ballot based on the address of the student’s school and an “I VOTED” sticker. 

While many schools will hold elections today, some opted to participate in the early voting period.

Independence High School in Charlotte and Wilmington Early College High School shared their experiences on Twitter. Thank you Ms. Willett and Ms. Gray for spreading the word!

Stay tuned for the election results and see how these students cast their First vote!
