How the Election Works

January is the time of year when the teens of Rhode Island get a chance to vote for the book they think is the best book they have read from a list selected by teachers, public librarians, and school library media specialists.

Where can our teens vote? Well, they can do it in their schools and local public libraries. Interested schools and libraries can find an official ballot under Official Election Ballot, to download and print.  Ballots can be accepted by the participating schools and libraries from January 22-February 29. Voting results should be emailed to by Monday, March 2. 

We are once again offering free books as prizes and incentives for both teen voters and voting stations in public and school libraries across Rhode Island. For more information and to get your voting station involved, click here for 2020 Voting Incentives.
