From Primaries to Decision NighteBook - 2016
On election night, all eyes are on the ballot tallies to see which candidates come out on top. But the actual voting process begins much earlier. Years before an election, candidates recruit supporters-voters-to work on their campaign and win support from other voters. Then political party members vote in primaries and caucuses to determine which candidates will represent their party in the general election. Finally, the general election takes place, but the voting process is not complete until members of the Electoral College cast their votes as well. Examine opposing viewpoints on some of the key issues in the election process and consider for yourself the responsibilities and challenges of voting in a US election.
