This two-part lesson focuses on a voter’s need to be fully informed prior to casting a vote on Election Day and how to acquire the necessary information. Students learn what a “yes” or “no” vote or a decision to abstain means on a ballot. Students learn the definitions of amendment, initiative, and referendum. By completing the handouts for school referendums, students are given the opportunity to think critically and to learn first-hand why voters need to be fully informed about ballot questions.
