What is an Election?


What is an Election? > 4 of 5
Has your class at school voted for a game you would like to play or a book for your teacher to read?

In Pasco County, we have major elections every two years. We vote for the people that will run our government, like:

The President of the United States
The Governor of Florida
The Sheriff of Pasco County
By voting, you have a say in who will be your leader.

Many people choose not to vote, but they give up a chance to choose leaders who will do things that are important to them.
