    • We make choices every day
      • What you want to eat
      • What you want to wear to school
    • You can make a choice because you like one thing better than another
      • Some choices have better consequences than others
  • 3. Why do we vote? (continued)
    • People in communities also make choices
    • It is a way that members of a community can make important choices about their government.
    • BUT BEFORE VOTING…people need to learn as much as they can about the consequences of each choice
  • 4. Before Voting - Get the FACTS
    • Learn about a subject you are voting on
    • Learn about a person you are voting for
    • Talk about the good and bad points of each choice with others
  • 5. Voting - The Process
    • An election - the setting for where people vote for a new law or a candidate (a person running for a special job)
    • There is a LOT of speaking and publicity around an election where people try to make others aware of what is going on and what to possibly vote for (CAMPAIGNING)

    • The vote- everyone’s vote is kept secret
    • Each person goes into a voting booth and makes a choice without anyone else watching
    • Voters DO NOT PUT THEIR NAME on the ballot
      • Why do you think this is?
  • 8. Voting - The Process (continued)
    • The count - the ballots are counted to see who won the most votes
    • Majority Rule : more than half of the people voted for a candidate
    • What about those people who did not vote for the winner?
      • They are the minority, but they still have rights and their ideas still matter. This is called Minority Rights
  • 9. NOW IT’S YOUR TURN

      • President
      • Vice President
      • 2 to three campaigners to help
  • 10. Step 1 - The Platform
    • Brainstorm and create a list of 10 reasons for why people should vote for your group to be chosen.
    • THINK about ways you can improve the classroom and change the school for GOOD
      • Consider problems and how you can fix them
      • SLOGAN -think of a catchy slogan for people to vote for you…
  • 11. Step 2: Presentation

        • Bonus: picture and transition
  • 13. Step 3 - Listening
    • During each presentation, the other groups will be in the audience listening to the presenting group’s ideas

      • Write down questions you may have for this group
  • 14. Step 4 - The Debate
