PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Since 2016 is a Presidential Election Year, your students may be interested in how it all works. In fact, once they learn about the Electoral College, your political savvy students may understand what many registered voters do not. When a vote is cast in November, the vote doesn’t go to the candidate on the ballot. Instead it goes to a group of Electors who then get to vote for the President. After quite a lot of detailed procedure and ceremony, the President is finally announced officially in January.
To be fully engaged in the process as it unfolds will make for a learning experience that will last a lifetime. Enjoy the opportunity. It will be four years before the chance comes again.
