Primaries, caucuses, pledged delegates, conventions… you may have heard these words on TV or seen them on the Internet. They’ve been thrown around a lot over the past year or so, and with good reason – it’s a presidential election year in the United States! Maybe you’ve stopped and thought, “What the heck do these weird words everyone keeps talking about really mean?” Well, Votes of Confidence: A Young Person’s Guide to American Elections is available to help! This go-to guide takes on the convoluted processes we Americans use to elect our leaders and, with some history and a little trivia thrown in for good measure, brings some much needed clarity to a system that can seem totally strange and foreign.

With this book you’ll be informed, prepared, and ready when it’s your turn to change things!
