Raising A.B.C. (A Better Citizen)  Voters' Booth

Raising A.B.C. is designed to help students discover how candidates get elected and how participating in the voting process creates better citizens.  Raising A.B.C.--Kids Get Out the Vote was written by Peggy Wyns-Madison, a former Teachers Network web mentor. 


Voters' Booth


Welcome to Raising A.B.C.--Kids Get Out the Vote! Here at the Voters' Booth, you will learn how citizens exercise their right to vote around the country and globally and how to help the voter registration drives in your community. 

  • Before a U.S. citizen can enter a voting booth, he/she must become a registered voter
  • Find out how a citizen can register to vote in your hometown
  • How long does it take to become a registered voter? 
  • What are the requirements to become registered? 
  • What are the political parties in your town? How do you join a political party? 
  • Under what circumstances should a citizen re-register to vote? 
  • What is the Electoral College and how does it work? 
  • And who really elects the president, anyway?

Research Spot:
Do a search of the candidates and campaign issues in the United States at the League of Women Voters and for your state

For younger students (Grades 3-5), try this VOTING BOOTH.
