The National Student Mock Election (formerly the National Student/Parent Mock Election) was started in 1980 by Edward Stanley and Gloria Kirshner. The two made a prolific pair in the 1960s: creating Exploring on NBC, a nationwide broadcast of the elementary school curriculum in language arts, social studies, math, and science. Exploring was a hit: over 600,000 teachers requested the series Teachers Guide. Stanley, Director of Public Affairs for NBC, and Kirshner, an educational consultant, knew they had something substantial.
But the two quickly noticed that social studies teachers, especially those attempting to teach civics and government, were underserved. In fact, coaches and math teachers were taking on civics courses at the middle and high school levels. Stanley and Kirshner both realized these underserved children — and their children’s children — would soon determine the destiny of the world’s longest-lasting democracy.
The absence of basic civic lessons (like the importance of voting) could very well threaten democracy itself. "Enlighten the people generally", Thomas Jefferson wrote, "and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day." Stanley and Kirshner were inspired by this quote and spent 10 years seeking a solution. Eventually, the two connected with legendary education leaders Dr. Benjamin Bloom, Dr. Lawrence Kohlberg, and Dr. Arthur W. Foshay. The experts helped Stanley and Kirshner develop a project titled the NBC Parent Participation TV Workshop Project.
The first-ever National Student/Parent Mock Election (NSPME) was in 1980 and had teachers, students and parents casting votes in approximately 30 states. By 1984, 2 million participated; and by 1988, 5 million. In 2016, the National Student Mock Election moved online, mobile, and social and over a million teachers and students participated. In 2020, we expect up to 5 million teachers and students to log on, review candidate profiles, compare issue statements, discuss, debate, and cast their vote online!
America’s Mock Election (and its subsidiary, American Civic Education) is a strictly nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization without party affiliation, bias, or designation. We work to advance the American public’s knowledge of civics, legislation, and voting through a variety of outreach, information, and education initiatives.
America's Mock Election develops fun, engaging, and exciting educational media content to encourage student voting and civic involvement. We work with content partners to produce teacher curriculum materials, teen-oriented celebrity PSA's, and civic awareness projects. It is our goal to engage America's 56 million elementary, middle, and high school students about the importance of civics, citizenship, and the power of their future vote.
The award-winning ProCon.org website serves more than 20 million people each year, including students and teachers in more than 11,000 schools in all 50 states and 90 countries. Additionally, 37 U.S. state governments, 17 U.S. state departments of education, 31 foreign governments, 25 U.S. federal agencies, and thousands of media articles have cited ProCon.org.
For each of its U.S. presidential election sites since 2008, ProCon.org has attracted millions of readers with its coverage of the candidates and their positions on key issues. In 2012, the New York Times (“Great Free Websites for Teaching Election 2012,” September 5, 2012) hailed the ProCon.org election site as “the most comprehensive teaching tool for researching the candidate’s stance on issues.” The Times recommended ProCon.org again in 2020 as among the essential election sites for students wanting to engage with that year’s presidential campaign (Natalie Proulx and Katherine Schulten, “Election 2020: 11 Ways to Engage Students From Now Until November,” nytimes.com, May 21, 2020).
Since 1931, the goal of National Student Council (NatStuCo) has been to help all student councils become more effective organizations. NatStuCo represents middle level and high school councils nationwide. It seeks to provide a valuable leadership partnership between students and their school.

NatStuCo is a program of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and is located at the NASSP national office in Reston, VA.
The Youth Leadership Initiative at the University of Virginia Center for Politics is dedicated to increasing civic engagement by providing teachers with the best civics education materials and programs. Research shows that quality civics education programs are essential to creating lifelong citizenship and YLI programs empower students to take responsibility for our democracy.
In 1998 UVA professor and Center for Politics Director Larry J. Sabato founded the Youth Leadership Initiative to combat the apathy and cynicism that he saw in his politics students. Professor Sabato believed that by creating quality civics education programs students would be energized to accept the responsibilities of citizenship and become lifelong participants in American democracy.
Activities such as the yearly Mock Election, E-Congress, Democracy Corps, and YLI lesson plans do more than just teach about civics and government. Each program is infused with simulations and hands-on projects that connect students with the political process. YLI is proud to be working with American Evolution to commemorate the arrival of the first Africans and women in significant numbers, and the beginning of representative government in America. In preparation for 2019, YLI and American Evolution have created the digital First Freedom Wall. The First Freedom Wall is a place where students can share ideas, comment on current issues, and think critically about our democracy. The Youth Leadership Initiative (YLI) provides everything educators need to get their students in the game absolutely FREE of charge. There is no catch.
Vote16USA is a national campaign, organized by Generation Citizen, that aims to support efforts to lower the voting age on the local level, help start new local campaigns, and elevate the issue’s prominence on a national level.
The Vote16USA campaign was officially launched in December 2015, with the release of our white paper “Young Voices at the Ballot Box: Advancing Efforts to Lower the Voting Age.” This comprehensive report was written after extensive research and interviews with experts and stakeholders. Importantly, it included legal research to show which cities and states are primed to lower the voting age to 16. The paper has since been updated and the third edition was published in 2020.
Now, guided by an Advisory Board and a Youth Advisory Board, we aim to help with the coordination of new and current local campaigns around the country while elevating the issue nationally through traditional and social media and by building partnerships with a broad group of stakeholders. This website serves as the central hub for these efforts as we move forward.
NationBuilder makes software that powers movements around the globe, and the thousands of customers we serve include every type of leader you can imagine. They’re multi-chaptered organizations raising awareness for causes around the world; they’re grassroots nonprofits working to shape their cities and communities for the better; they’re citizens stepping up to run for office for the first time. Whether they’re working in politics, education, advocacy, energy, or an industry yet to be named — they’re people who envision a future they can’t build alone. They use NationBuilder to make it real.
Run For Office (RFO) is an initiative of NationBuilder that provides critical, free information on what offices people can run for, how to get on the ballot, and when they need to file to run for office, in the first-ever database of its kind — a directory of all candidacy information and races, including down-ballot local municipalities, school boards and special elections. RFO currently hosts all federal, state executive, state legislative, county, and school board positions in the United States — approximately 145,000 positions. NationBuilder built the database to be searchable by address, so anyone, anywhere can access information on the offices available to run for with just their zip code.

The National Association of School Superintendent (NASS) is the only national association focused solely on serving the needs of school superintendents. We offer resources, tools, and advocacy opportunities for thousands of superintendents across the country.
NASS represents and advocates for education leaders nationwide and is active in student advocacy at the federal level. NASS members lead efforts in negotiations on school finance, reducing bureaucracy, mental health, school safety, equity, civil rights, special education, the needs of English learners, teacher, staff and administrator training, health and many other important policy areas in K-12 education in America.
NASS’s focus on educational equity means the association plays a lead advocacy role on issues such as school discipline, school climate and safety, mental health and wellness, and supporting historically underserved student populations. NASS is deeply committed to closing opportunity and achievement gaps and to elevating the voices of students in our public schools. Through our annual advocacy events, NASS ensures that education leaders always have a seat at the Federal table in conversations that have the power to shape our children’s and our country’s future.
