#VoteKids this November!

Election Day 2020 is Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Children can’t vote, but you can!

Voting is one of the main ways that citizens can affect policies and laws that govern access to essential resources like high-quality nutrition, education, housing, and health care. Many children’s health issues are at stake this election. Before you vote, ask your candidates where they stand on key child health issues, including:

Health Care Coverage
Health Care Access
Health Care Inequities
COVID-19 Global Health Pandemic
Immigrant Child Health
Education
Gun Violence
Racism
Climate Change

To learn more on how children are affected by these issues, visit AAP’s Election 2020: Vote Kids resource page.

For Florida-specific voting information, including requesting a mail-in ballot, early voting, and finding a polling place, visit Vote.org.

Important Dates to Remember:
10/19 – 11/1:  Early voting; multiple sites 7 am – 7 pm
10/24:  Last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot
11/3:  Election Day; polls open 7am – 7 pm

Together, we can #SupportFLKids when we #VoteKids this November!

Led by the Florida Department of Health, Spill the Water! is a fun, educational campaign that teaches kids about mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one teaspoon or a bottle cap of water, so eliminating sources of standing water around homes is critical to keep mosquitoes from multiplying. When kids Spill the Water!, they can be superheroes in their home and community! Visit the campaign website for fun activity sheets for kids and useful information for parents on protecting children and babies from mosquitoes.
