Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
Election Day is held in many countries all over the world, but the voters who participate are not always allowed to make a free choice. Only in a democracy, even the word means "power to the people," do voters actually choose a leader. In an effort to make voting as convenient as possible, early voting or voting by mail is offered. The vote is a way for people to choose which candidate they think will do the best job. Election Day in the United States has been set as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Poll workers set up polling stations in schools, churches, and community offices. The booths are arranged so that each voter can vote in secret. Poll watchers oversee the process so that voting is fair. Ballot boxes are sealed and taken to a secure place to be counted. Other countries hold elections on days convenient for their voters. Included in the series, "Celebrations in My World," Election Day offers further study with a glossary and index. Crystal Sikkens' contemporary photographs fill each page with visual evidence of the importance of Election Day. An Election Day quiz completes the book. Reviewer: JoAn Watson Martin
