There are multiple ways to play an active role in a democracy. However, many people do not take part because apathy—the belief that political action is useless—runs rampant in the United States. This lesson urges students to evaluate how voter participation in the United States fits the expectations of democratic governance.

Your students will analyze:
●The importance of participating in the political process if a democratic form of government is to thrive
●Key legislative action taken by citizens (an “initiative”)
●Basic components of a political action movement
●The impact a small group can have if it becomes politically active
