Americans have been voting since the United States was first formed. As U.S. citizens, we vote for our country's presidents, senators, and representatives in Congress. We also vote for local leaders like mayors and city council members. We even cast votes to decide how our tax dollars are spent. How does the voting process work, though? Does everyone have the right to vote? Can this right ever be taken away? How are political candidates chosen? Is there anything kids can do to participate in the election process? This book answers all of these questions and more about one of the most important rights you will ever have as an American citizen-the right to vote.
