November Resources: One Year Until the 2020 Election

NOVEMBER 06, 2019

We are officially one year out from the 2020 presidential election. Will your students be voting?

We just launched the NEW Cast Your Vote that teaches young voters, and soon-to-be voters, the ins and outs of the voting process, as well as the importance of doing your homework before heading to the polls. Use this month to start engaging students in learning about voting, the electoral process, the Electoral College, the role of political parties, and how the impeachment process works.
