With just two short weeks left until Election Day, it's a great time to talk about how America elects its Presidents. It's quite a complicated process and one that many citizens know very little about.
I found this video that tries to give a simple explanation. It's called "Electing a US President in Plain English" and it's courtesy of www.commoncraft.com . Take a look, and share it with your child, friends, and family. It's quite informative and with this year's election being the most important and historic one, perhaps, in our lifetime, I think it's helpful to understand the process. And it's a great chance to explain how this all works to our children, the voters of the future!
