In this young readers’ edition of Thank You for Voting, debut author and journalist Erin Geiger Smith presents a fascinating look into America’s voting history and inspires young people to get involved!
Voting is a privilege and a right, but it hasn’t always been for many people. From the founding fathers to Jim Crow to women’s suffrage to gerrymandering—and everything in between—readers will get a look at the complex history of voting and become empowered to ask BIG questions like:
—What can I do to support my favorite leader?
—Who can I talk to about the issues I believe in?
—How can I make a difference in my community?
Every citizen has the right to vote. Let each one count!
