Chatham, New York


Make sure your vote is counted! Kids (and kids at heart) are invited to vote in our special Lindenwald election on Tuesday, November 3.

Mortimer the Turtle and Foxy the Fox have both decided they want to be President of Lindenwald for the next four years! You can vote for the candidate you think will do the best job either:

• In person at Lindenwald from 1 pm to 3 pm on Tuesday, November 3 (voters will receive a sticker)
• “Absentee” via poll on our Facebook or twitter pages from 10 am to 4 pm on November 3

Choosing the president of Lindenwald is a very important job. The best way to make a choice is to learn about what is important to the candidates and what they are promising to do. This is called their platform.

It is also important to understand how elections work. You can complete activities to help you learn about voting and the candidates by checking out our website here: https://www.nps.gov/mava/learn/kidsyouth/learn-about-voting.htm

This program is designed to introduce children to elections, voting, and making important decisions through hands-on activities. We encourage participants to upload photos of their completed activities to social media using the tag #LindenwaldDecision2020.
