Kids – you finally get to vote! For two days only, speak up about what you want, dress up, and do politics your way.

Get hands-on with how democracy works at The Kids' Election – a pop-up polling booth at Te Papa, especially for Tamariki. Women got the vote 125 years ago – now kids can too!

Rock up to the polling booth, and cast your vote on issues chosen by other kids. Add your own suggestions for voting topics.

Something bugging you? Writing your own protest placard about it, and bring attention to the things that matter most to you.

Dress up in our costumes – become an activist, a suffragette, a politician, or something completely different!

Te Papa has teamed up with Barbarian Productions: Our friends at Barbarian Productions specialise in creating fun, engaging, and inclusive spaces that bring people together around complex social themes.

The Kids' Election celebrates 125 years of women’s suffrage. It gives a voice to tamariki in a sphere usually just for adults, and supplies tools to help them ‘Do It for Themselves’.
