Election Activity Packet 

Here at the City of Glendora’s Website, we are giving you, the KIDS, a chance to vote and understand what it truly means to have that right.

Who gets to vote? Every citizen who:

  •  Is at least 18 years old
  • Is a registered voter
  • (In Some States) has not been convicted of a serious crime

Not only do citizens have the right to vote, they are expected to vote. They are also expected to be informed voters. Informed voters help make sure that good people are chosen to be representatives and ensure that good laws are made.

Why Vote?

Voting is one of the most important responsibilities we have as citizens. It is one of the most precious rights secured by the Constitution of the United States. When individuals exercise their right to vote, they have a say in who represents their opinions and values. Citizens vote for people to represent them at the federal, state, and local government levels.

 

By not voting, representatives may not know about your wishes or needs. It is a chance for your voice to be heard!

When do you vote?

Glendora Municipal Elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March of odd-numbered years. The City’s next election will be held on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

Where do you Vote?

 

As a registered voter, you will usually receive instructions from the government telling you where to vote. The location where you go to vote is called a “polling place” or “poll.” Polls are located throughout the community. Where you live will dictate where your “polling place” or “poll” is located.
