This lesson exposes students to youth voting trends and how they compare to their parents’ and grandparents’ participation in voting. Students are introduced to articles about generation voting trends. Groups work with U.S. Census Bureau charts and graphs to determine voting results among generations, genders, and education levels in the November 2008 presidential election. Students might reach the conclusion that they have significant voting power if they register and vote.
