One issue with teaching about voting in K-12 in Chicago is the large undocumented population - as soon as you mention voting, they turn off. How can we get those students engaged with the importance of voting if they or their parents are not eligible?

How about bringing in someone from a nonprofit that works in voting. Start at an early age. You might check with Changing Worlds in Chicago for contacts.
Dee Runaas
34:53
That makes sense. Thanks!
Tanya Rhodes Smith

Thanks, Sara! Agree!

There are also voting organizations like FairVote here in the DC area. They have such creative ideas that are starting to take hold in some communities.
Tanya Rhodes Smith

Agree, Matt. Overworked and underpaid but these tech tools (Activote and Turbovote for registration) can track for us.

Given that votes on proposals are hard to decipher in terms of whether the vote supports or dooms particular ideas, how do you categorize elected officials' votes over so many issues nationwide??
Tanya Rhodes Smith
46:07
Sara, can you address the information gap in rural America and underserved communities and Activote's role here?
