Election 2018: #VoteKids


​Election 2018: #VoteKids

​Welcome to the American Academy of Pediatrics Get Out the Vote campaign site. The national midterm elections are Tuesday, November 6, 2018. All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate will be contested. In addition, 36 governors, more than 6,000 state legislators, and scores of other state and local officials across the country will be elected.

Here you will find resources to help learn what's at stake for children, how and where to register to vote, and what you can do to speak up for children at the ballot box.

While children can't vote, pediatricians and others who care for children can. From clinics to state capitals to Congress, the AAP has one message for our elected leaders: put children first. Voting with children in mind is a small act that can make a big difference.
