Build the Vote invites kids of all ages to learn more about the United States’ electoral process. It also teaches about the most important issues currently being debated to teach civic engagement through Minecraft.
Today virtual Build the Vote voting houses opened in Minecraft. From now until October 30, young Americans have the opportunity to learn how to vote and practice their constitutional rights.
How to Cast a Ballot in Minecraft Build the Vote
The Build the Vote world mimics real-life steps voters face during the electoral process, including registering to vote and casting a ballot.
In the game, players will physically walk to a polling house that looks like the Capitol Building.
To register, kids press a button and see the face of their little avatar appear on a wall. This wall creates a beautiful mosaic with the faces of people who registered.
In the final step of the process, players teleport to a private voting room. Here they vote for candidates and 10 of the most important issues currently debated across the country. These topics include:
- Gun laws
- Criminal justice reform
- Healthcare access
- Climate change
- Racial equality
- Education system
- Student loans
- Combatting corruption
The Minecraft Build the Vote world simulates many of the same steps voters in real life go through, from registering to casting a ballot.
The results of the votes cast by in Minecraft through Build the Vote will be shared publicly beginning on October 30th until Election Day.
Build the Vote also serves as a reminder to those eligible to vote for the first time to cast their ballot leading up to Election Day.
