Tricky Ballot in Illinois (Clip 5 of 5)

This fifth clip comes from Chicago, Illinois and centers around a kind of paper ballot, in which voters use a tool to punch out a hole next to the candidate they choose. It is associated with the \Election Day lesson plan. There are many different types of voting systems and machines in place all over the country. Some voters use lever machines, others use touch screen electronic devices. Why do you think there are so many different types of systems and machines? Return to lesson plan »
