My Voice National Student Mock Election
The My Voice National Student Mock Election makes it possible for young people and their schools and parents to become directly involved in the political process and to cast their votes for the 2012 election. At www.nationalmockelection.org/polls young people are encouraged to share their opinions and concerns about various national topics, social issues and their communities.
This week’s poll topic, Making a Difference, asks questions such as: Do you feel like you can make a difference in your community? In what aspect of your adult life do you think you will have the greatest potential to make a difference in the world? New polls are featured twice a week, providing a forum for students from across the nation to be heard.
Dive deeper into the issues with the Pearson Foundation’s Projector, a free, community-driven set of high-quality projects for classrooms. In conjunction with the My Voice National Student Mock Election, the Projector includes seven new projects for grades 3-12 tied directly to the issue on the ballot.
The My Voice National Student Mock Election is the nation’s largest civic education project and the world’s largest national mock election. Become part of civic discourse by visiting www.nationalmockelection.org.
