Video Your Vote!


Video Your Vote is a joint project between the NewsHour and YouTube to document the experiences of new and old voters across the country and to collect voter opinions on the 2008 election. Cameras were sent out to almost 50 teachers in over 26 states and the District of Columbia.

You can see more of the videos on a special YouTube channel youtube.com/videoyourvote. You can browse by geographic area or subject. Come back and tell us which ones are most important to you!

Discussion Questions

1. Look at a few Video Your Vote videos, what do they tell us about the health of our democracy? Are voters excited? How can you tell?

2. A lot of people voted early this election cycle, do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?

3. When will you be allowed to vote? What do you think will be the big issues when you vote?

4. Imagine you are a candidate trying to get out the vote in the last few days. How would you encourage people to vote for you?
