Why Do We Vote?
Many Americans believe it is their civic duty to vote. However, in most elections, less than half of eligible voters show up at the polls. Readers are introduced to the many reasons why voting is an important, including how voting allows the voice of the people to be heard. The main content tackles a complex idea of citizenship with accessible language and age-appropriate subject matter. Briefly covering social studies curriculum topics such as the Electoral College, disenfranchisement, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, this book serves as an excellent companion to classroom learning.
