Voting is a process by which someone expresses an opinion officially. Usually voting refers to the act of citizens choosing candidates for public office or deciding on public issues and laws. In the United States, people vote at the local, state, and federal (national) levels.

To vote in the United States, one must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years old on election day. States also require various periods of residency before voting is permitted. Most states have two other rules as well: A voter cannot be a felon (someone who has committed a serious crime) or mentally incompetent.

Voting is a private matter and no one should see how another person votes. In all elections, a person may vote only one time. The integrity of the voting process is integral to keeping our country strong. Let’s teach our children and one another all about voting.
