Watermelon wins Kids Voting Eelection

Joe Denoyer - November 9, 2022 4:07 pm

The kids have spoken and watermelon was the clear winner in the election on Tuesday at the Liberal election site. The Liberal Area Coalition for Families had a Kids Voting site at the Seward County election site at the Activity Center in Liberal and 96 votes were cast.

“Watermelon was the clear winner with 43 votes cast, with banana a distant second with 14 votes,” said Kay Burtzloff, LACF President. “Apples had 12 votes, grapes 7 votes and oranges and peaches both got 4.” Twelve ballots were not able to be counted since they either had more than one fruit selected or had a write-in vote.

Burtzloff said that Kids Voting not only helps children get comfortable with the idea of visiting the polls and voting but also helps families with kids to vote. “We will watch the kids while the adults go to vote which is especially helpful for those who have multiple children with them.”
