Library of Congress: Elections, the American Way

This interactive Library of Congress site helps students learn the history of our election system. There are explorations of candidates, how the voting franchise was broadened, a description of the party system, how the electoral system works, and sketches of many important political issues over the history of the United States. Links are provided to illustrations and other articles in the vast Library of Congress website. For fun, learn how to make apple head dolls of presidential candidates, past or present.
