        Inside the Voting Booth

        This activity introduces students to the history of suffrage in America, through the "Voting Time Machine," which presents case studies from different decades. Students also anticipate the time when they will be able to vote, through a customized, printable voter registration card, which also asks them to identify the issues they think are most important today. Understand why it is important to vote, examine times in U.S. election history when one vote made a difference in the election's outcome, learn several historical facts about voting and vote in a mock issues survey.
