Kids Voting USA/Marathon County

WAUSAU (WAOW)--2012 is shaping up to be busy one when it comes to politics. With the recall efforts underway in Wisconsin, to the upcoming presidential election, there is something for nearly everyone, to follow.

   Kids Voting USA-WI/Marathon County will give area students an opportunity to learn more about the political process.  During the 2008 political season, some 15,000 area students took part in the project.

   This time out, organizers hope to set up the first mock political convention in our area,  with 30 high schools taking part. Kids Voting provides non-partisan educational materials to schools on the election and voting process.

     The non-profit organization is looking for support from area businesses to finance youth activities. You can learn more at
