KIDS VOTE 2020: Dog Presidential Election at Bloomfield Public Library (Oct. 12-Nov. 3)

2020 is a big year for elections, and at Bloomfield Public Library we don’t want kids of all ages to be excluded from this important process!

This year we are hosting our “Dog Presidential Election.” There will be 4 candidates from popular children’s literature for voters (ages 17 and under) to select from. Kids will have an opportunity to compare and contrast the “platforms” of each candidate. And due to the current pandemic, voting will be taking place in two ways:

  1. Starting on Oct. 12, kids can go to and do an “absentee” vote using our online form. OR…
  2. Kids can come to either of our locations on election day (Nov. 3rd) to vote in-person using a ballot. Ballot boxes and ballots will be clearly marked and available outside each of our buildings.

Be sure to watch Facebook and Instagram for promotional materials about each candidate in the coming weeks.

NOTE: You do not need to be a Bloomfield resident to participate!
