Elections & Voting Curriculum

PA Youth Vote's curriculum is an introduction for new voters and nonvoters alike. Students will start with a discussion of historic voting rights and voter suppression policies and evaluate them in a timeline activity. Students will learn about the role of political parties, take a quiz to identify which parties are closest to their beliefs, and eligible students will have the opportunity to register to vote online during class time. Students will debate the pros and cons of voting by mail and evaluate which option they prefer: voting by mail, or at their polling place. Finally, students will research the candidates and ballot questions in the upcoming General Election, and make their own voting recommendations to bring to the polls or share with eligible voters.
