Explore the past, present and future of voting around the world, and why it's one of the most important things we can do as citizens.

In Get Out and Vote!, discover how voting affects everyone's life, what election day looks like, why some people don’t cast a ballot and more. Did you know a ping-pong ball once decided an election or that the government in Ancient Greece voted by shouting? From elections and politics to voter suppression and accessible ballots, there is so much to explore when it comes to voting. With profiles of young people who are making the vote count, this book will empower young people of all backgrounds to make their voices heard.

“Informative and interesting…For readers between ages 9-12, but the information could easily be useful for older readers as well—including adults pursuing ESL who want to learn about the voting process or teachers of civics and citizenship classes. Highly Recommended.”
