November 3 is Election Day!


On Election Day, voters travel to their polling places to cast their ballots. They may vote on issues, or they may vote for people to represent them in government. In the past, voters marked on paper ballots who or what they voted for. Today, almost everyone votes with special computers.

Being able to vote in elections is the right of every U.S. citizen who is 18 years or older. While voting may seem simple, there are many rules for elections and voting. Knowing and understanding all of them can be very difficult! Luckily, Rodman Public Library has many materials for learning about voting and elections.
