Tips for teaching your child about the voting process:
- Model the behavior. Show your child the location where you will be voting. Take something age appropriate to keep your child busy if they wait with you in line.
- Talk about the issues. Discuss an issue that is especially important to you and why.
- Polls open. Find out when the polls open and close. Recheck to make sure where you are supposed to vote.
- Freedoms. Talk about the freedoms each prospective candidate supports.
Homeschoolers: draw/color an illustration and write why you think voting is important.
