NKY Kids Choose Trump. McConnell, Masks

Local students not yet old enough to vote cast ballots much like their parents in this region.

Kids Voting Northern Kentucky, the nonprofit, nonpartisan, volunteer organization dedicated to teaching young people the importance of voting, released the results of its election-year program. 

In typical years, kids under the age of 18 cast ballots at designated places, but due to the pandemic, the program was moved online (though printed ballots were available for who needed them).

Northern Kentucky kids voted in the races for President, U.S. Senate, and the Fourth Congressional District, while also voting on questions related to remote learning and mask mandates.

Here are the results:

President

Donald Trump (R) 617

Joe Biden (D) 526

Kanye West (i) 104

Jo Jorgenson (L) 24                                                                                          

U.S. Senate

Mitch McConnell (R) 623

Amy McGrath (D) 514

Brad Barron (L) 113

Congress - 4th District

Thomas Massie (R) 694

Alexandra Owensby (D) 526
