About the Book

"Updated for the 2024 election cycle, this revised edition provides a compelling primer of how US election processes came to be and how they work"--

Book Synopsis

A detailed primer on the United States election cycle - newly revised and updated!

Every four years, coverage of the presidential election turns into a horse-race story about who's leading the polls and who said what when. Social media and online news have made it easier to spread false information (even by accident) and harder to know what's accurate. It can be difficult to get good information about how the election process actually works, why it matters, or how you can get involved. Civics education and information about how our government functions is necessary whether you're a longtime voter or a soon-to-be voter. This newly revised edition includes statistics and anecdotes from recent elections alongside straightforward, nonpartisan analysis and explanation. Author Jeff Fleischer uses a fun, casual voice and real-world examples to provide an essential resource that will remain relevant long after the next president is elected.

Praise for the second edition of Votes of Confidence:
"A very readable, engaging, and entertaining history of American elections and politics for young people."--starred, Booklist

"Reads like course notes from a beloved teacher . . . A history lesson, civics compendium, and call to action combined in one engaging volume."--School Library Journal

Review Quotes

"Great to keep in any young adult library, and an excellent addition to any civics, history or government class. Very well done to help educate our young people on why politics and voting play a significant part in American society. Reviewer Rating: 5"--Children's Literature
