The Democracy Project

Make sure you vote today and if you have a chance to take your kids with you, then do it. It is a great opportunity for you to model good citizenship to them and let them know that being able to vote is a privilege. The Democracy Project is a great website for kids to learn about the democratic process. It's fun for adults to look at too. DK Eyewitness books (I LOVE these books for kids, we have a collection of them) has a book called Vote which also does a great job of explaining the history of voting and elections. Remember that every voice counts.

Happy voting!
