Millennials Can Vote (but few do)

9/25/2018 - The Outreach Coordinator for BestColleges.com said that fewer than 20% of eligible voters aged 18-29 actually voted in the 2014 midterms, and she sent us a series of guides addressing issues to help make it easier for them to vote:
• Student Voters Guide: https://www.bestcolleges.com/resources/student-voting-guide/
• Voting in College – Common FAQs: https://www.bestcolleges.com/resources/voting-in-college/
• State-by-State Voter Registration Guide: https://www.bestcolleges.com/resources/voting-by-state/


Contributed Links for Students

3/7/2018 - We received an email from Danielle and her teacher (Miss Sharkey) recommending this link about the three branches of our federal government. At the end is a list of links to government agency "kids pages."
    The Three Branches of Government

7/21/2018 - Another student found an excellent resource page. Peyton, who is a scout and is trying to earn her Civics Badge, did a bit of research and she found this Civics and Government resource page specifically for kids. It is loaded with fun games and information.

How to Increase Voter Participation

An interesting article for social workers (!) who have the unique day-to-day role between individuals and society, this is brief and useful. It covers what prevents people from voting (9 voter suppression tactics), 8 questions to answer in a voter information guide, and it outlines an action plan on how to address voter turnout and voter rights issues.
