About This Lesson

During this lesson students will gain a deeper understanding of potential reforms that could improve elections in the United States. Students will examine a list of proposed reforms from real congressional legislation (the Freedom to Vote Act and the American Confidence in Elections Act) and work in groups to select the best policies to help voters access the ballot while ensuring the integrity of our elections. Students will have to consider how different groups of Americans are affected by elections and decide which policies are best to aid those voters. The lesson concludes with a short class discussion where students can voice their opinion and demonstrate their understanding of election reforms. 

This lesson was originally created in conjunction with the Edward M. Kennedy Institute's award winning Senate Immersion Module but can now be used as a stand alone lesson in your classroom!
