Happy Birthday, Now VOTE! is an initiative developed by Cathryn Berger Kaye of CBK Associatesand The Educators Consortium for Service Learning. We invite you to be a part of this K-12 collaboration to mobilize high school voter registration.
This service learning experience helps students at any age learn about the importance of voting. The Happy Birthday, Now VOTE! resource guide provides activities and books that can be used to explore democracy and voting. Then, students write letters to their peers who are celebrating birthdays of voter registration age, telling them why it is important to be a part of the election process. Share your experiences with the hashtag #HBDNowVote. The guide(s) below can be edited to reflect the voter registration policies of your area. You will see a few different versions below that have been prepared for certain states.
You can find additional resources compiled to support service learning experiences around democracy and the election process in our section on Democracy & Voting.
