What are elections?
Voting may not be a legal obligation, but it is certainly one of the most important privileges citizens of a democracy have. Serving as a primer on civic engagement, this lively volume teaches readers about the basics of the electoral process, from registration to casting a ballot, in the United States. Readers will learn about the different types of elections, what campaigns are, and how ordinary citizens can effect change. Guiding questions invite readers to consider the reasons for various electoral practices and educate them on the importance of making their voices heard.
