Field Trip

We have been studying government/politics so we took a fieldtrip to the local Election board office. The kids and I both learned alot. Until then I never really thought about all the behind the scenes work for elections. The kids learned about registering to vote, who's eligible, and a little about absentee ballots. 

After an explination about how the machines here in Oklahoma work the kids got to fill out a sample ballot for entertainers here. 

These were the bags set up with materials for each poll location in this district. It's really amazing how much they have to store in between each election and the level of organization they have to maintain.
