I am going to use these cards (printed on cardstock) to place in front of the room near the actual candy.
Prior to the primary election (August), we will read LaRue for Mayor and discuss the two major political parties. I will divide students into "republicans and democrats" and they will vote for their choice to represent their party in the general election. We have been discussing character traits so that will also come into play during the "election". In November (general election), we will begin trying to persuade each other to vote for the chosen candidate.
Final vote will be in November.
