Vote count is in on NKY Kids Voting ballots — a mock election program teaching the importance of voting

Future voters of any age were encouraged to go to the polls with their parent/guardian to cast a “Kids Voting” ballot in a mock election at a Kids Voting booth.

Kids Voting Northern Kentucky is a non-profit, non-partisan, volunteer organization dedicated to teaching young people the importance of, and to help develop the habit of, voting.

Northern Kentucky kids cast more than 1,500 votes this year in precincts throughout Northern Kentucky.

From 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., kids voted at the same precinct locations where adults did throughout Campbell County and at several precincts in Boone County as well as all of the branches of Boone and Kenton County Public Libraries and several local schools.

Votes were cast in the Senate race, 4th District race and Supreme Court race as well. They also weighed in on two topics.

Official and final results are as follows:

Paul (R): 757
Booker (D): 727
4th District

Massie (R): 576
Lehman (D):  593
Osborne (I):  274
