Kids get to vote at this Long Beach home

One Long Beach family organized a polling place for kids, where young voters cast their ballot and learn about the voting process ahead of the 2020 election.
LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- On the eve of Election Day, the Hernandez family in Long Beach had an idea.

"Luna said, 'Let's have an election at our house,' and I said, 'OK!'" said Luna's mom, Marina Hernandez.

That's when Marina texted a few friends, posted about the event on social media and set up the mock polling place for kids on her front lawn.

"What I like about our neighborhood and our community is that there are a lot of Trump supporters and Biden supporters but everybody always shows peace and love and respect to each other all the time," Marina said. "I just feel that's a good message that's in the neighborhood already and if we bring it to the kids then it's advantageous all around."
