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.

With great music by Raffi, Red Yarn, Miss Katie Sings, The Deedle Deedle Dees, Annie Lynn, Spicy T & Shihan, and the Story Pirates.
