Part of Capstone's "Our Government" series, this title gives beginning readers basic information about the voting process in the United States.  Red, white, and blue colors are features through the pages; all words found in the glossary are printed in bold, blue ink while blue text boxes with white letters give the same information at the bottom of that particular page containing the word.  This duplicity initially seemed unnecessary but I do see how it would be helpful to readers.  One chapter introduces readers to voting in historical context, where only white, male landowners could vote.  Fact bubbles are included on nearly every two-page spread.  Three additional print resources are mentioned as is a FactHound website.  Readers have the opportunity to think about two questions which are posed at the end of the book, printed as "Critical Thinking Using the Common Core."  A good starting point for young readers and those learning English.
