This program is recommended for children 6 and up and is free with general admission or membership.

“An election year gives us a great opportunity to talk with children about fairness and making decisions as a group,” says Kahla DeSmit, LCM Executive Director. “We hope these activities give children a fun and practical understanding of our democratic process.”

The LWVLA will be donating an item from the LCM wishlist. Throughout the day, children will make campaign posters to encourage others to vote for their favorite item. In the weeks leading up to the general election, visitors to the Museum can vote for their favorite item, and the one with the most votes will be purchased by the League and donated to the Museum for children to enjoy during each visit.

“It’s a fun way to introduce the voting process,” adds Savanna Hovis, LCM Visitor Services Manager, “and for children to experience the results of their ‘campaigning’. We hope to see lots of creative posters with catchy slogans!”

In addition to other hands-on activities, the LWVLA will be helping adults register for the upcoming election and answering questions.

“The committee is very proud of our partnership with the LCM,” says Elaine Hopkins of New Berlin and chair of the Mauch Millennial Project. “Their commitment to educating children about what it means to have a voice in important decisions, whether it’s in their personal lives or the life of their community, meshes perfectly with our goals.”
