The 2018 U.S. Congressional Midterms are approaching. As special educators, it is our job to promote civic responsibility with the needs of children and youth with exceptionalities in mind. It is equally important to be aware of the education positions of each candidate so that you vote knowing how your decision will impact you as a professional and children and youth with exceptionalities. CEC’s goal is to ensure that you have the information you need to become an educated voter and active participant in our society.
That’s why CEC is providing you with our nonpartisan voter education guide: I Educate, I Participate: 2018 Midterm U.S. Congressional Election Voter Education Guide. Its purpose is to provide you with a one-stop shop for information and resources to help guide you during this election season. In this guide you’ll find information on candidate positions, upcoming town hall meetings, resources on voter registration, voter deadlines, finding your polling place, CEC’s policy priorities and k-12 lesson plans for the classroom.
