Classroom Clip

Voting in Wisconsin (Clip 2 of 5)

This second clip shows a polling place in Wisconsin and is an activity associated with the Election Day lesson plan. Have students take notes on the polling environment as they watch the video. Ask students how this polling environment compared with the one shown from Ohio. What Wisconsin law made it possible for the 18-year-old girl to just show up and vote in her first election without registering beforehand? How did her voting experience compare with the woman with the baby in the first video clip? Based on what the students have seen, how did voter registration procedures affect participation?
