Rock the Vote!

At the Academy of Harpeth Village, we were so excited to make our voices heard and vote! The children had a blast learning about why voting is so important! The children had so much fun pretending to vote as well! Make sure you go vote and make your voice heard! 
Here are some election fun facts:
1. Weather and farming used to dictate when election day was
2. In 1856, congress dropped the property ownership requirement for voting
3. The United States is ranked 139th out of 172 countries in voter participation
4. Universal suffrage was not officially granted until the 1970s in the United States
