Elections..the American Way


Another wonderful production of The Library of Congress, this interactive site could be labelled American Democracy 101. Using many vintage photographs and illustrations, it answers such basic questions as What is a political party, How does one become a candidate, What is the Electoral College, and much more. The site drills into each topic in depth, but in so doing it provides the definitive answers to questions that, to be honest, sometimes puzzle many of us. It is also an excellent place for new immigrants to get a better understanding of representative democracy in this, their adopted country.
