Voting and the Electoral Process

U.S. citizens, 18 years of age or older, have the right to one of the most fundamental aspects of our democracy: voting. How do we vote, when do we vote, and why do we vote or choose not to vote are essential questions that are an ever-evolving aspect of our local, state, and national government. How does the process work and what are the key elements of our elections?
