This TED Talk examines the technological deficiencies of the voting system and offers an insight into how to improve the election systems in the US. This resource would be a great fit for any classes studying elections/voting, US Government, Comparative Government, or modern democracies. In this lesson, students watch the TED Talk, complete individual research on voter turnout rates worldwide, and respond to a prompt on compulsory voting. This resource is simple, straightforward, and easy to use, and I hope your students enjoy learning more about voting in the US and around the world.
