Recruiting, Training and Retaining Election Workers 

The Future Vote Initiative, which has recruited students from grades 6 to 12 to participate in elections, including over some who have served as election judges after their sixteenth birthday.

Since 2004, the Montgomery County Board of Elections (BOE) has conducted the Future Vote Initiative to encourage students from grades 6 to 12 to participate in elections. To date, 43,619 students have participated in the Future Vote Initiative, including over 10,000 who have served as election judges after their sixteenth birthday. The program recruits energetic, tech savvy students, many of who are also bilingual, into the election workforce and saves the county money. The program also provides an experience for young people that will shape their values and character and give them an understanding of what it means to exercise their vote and empower others to do the same.
