This time on The Children’s Hour, we learn all about how Presidential Elections work. We feature New Mexico Secretary of State, Maggie Toulouse Oliver who walks us through the election process. Then we learn all about the Electoral College with an actual elector, Dr. Pamelya Herndon. Why do we have this indirect way of voting for President and Vice President? The Kids Crew explore whether the process is fair, and what it would take to change it. Plus we find out how kids can get involved at the polls. Click here to find out how you can help in your state.
The Children’s Hour is supported by the Cultural Services Department and the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund at the City of Albuquerque. This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts. We also have support from Electric Playhouse and numerous foundations also support our work including the Infinite Gesture Fund, The Limestone Fund, and The Laughing Buddha Fund. Thank you to our listeners who contribute to us through the Paypal Giving Fund, Paypal, and by subscribing to our podcasts on Patreon.
