PBS Election Central: After the Election

After a winner is announced in a Presidential election, the U.S. begins a peaceful transition of power from the President to the President-elect in order to sustain our democracy. How can being a good citizen support our changing government? Civic engagement, no matter who won or lost, is vital to maintain a democracy, especially in times of change. Below are LearningMedia resources to engage students with information about good citizenship and how to participate in civic discourse.
