Join Junior Justice League to Get Out the Vote

Posted & filed under Blog, Youth & Teen.

Join Lincolnwood Library’s Junior Justice League, a virtual youth community activism program seeking to make a difference in our world while staying connected to your community. Friends who need service hours, this is your opportunity to both complete your requirements AND help support our community!

They will be hosting a special National Voter Registration Day JJL session on September 22 at 3:30pm CST on Zoom for families to Get out the Vote together. This is a fantastic opportunity to bring kids, teens and caregivers together to discuss how to raise your voice. Register with your email address here today!

Niles Township Supervisor Bonnie Kahn Ognisanti & local community group Lincolnwood Together will join us to share the importance of civic engagement and participation in our democracy.

We will create our own Get out the Vote Postcards to encourage people in our lives to vote. You can pick up JJL Postcard Kits in the youth department Lincolnwood Library, while supplies last, or make/use your own postcards. Bring whatever art supplies you like to use to our program.

You can also pick up a Get Out the Vote Postcard Kit to participate in this activity at your own convenience. Feel free to bring your postcards back to the library for us to mail.

Pick up your own Get out the Vote Postcard Kit. Postcard art made by Kate.
Yes, there are stickers in the kits.

Junior Justice League has participated in several Get out the Vote projects in the past, during the mid-term elections in 2018, village, school and library elections, and the spring primaries. Gain inspiration from our young people by checking out these videos showcasing their creative Get Out the Vote postcards!

How delightful is this poster about the 2020 Illinois primary that young JJL friend, K., made? It makes me smile every time I see it.

Lincolnwood Library will provide lots of resources and information about voting throughout the fall to help you find the information you need about registering, researching candidates, finding your polling place, and more.
