Civics Toolkit

The Civics Toolkit is an Oregon-centric guide to elections civics. The lesson plans target students ages 17 to 24. They cover everything from the history of voting in Oregon to what you need to know before you register to vote in our great state.

As Oregon's chief elections officer, it is my duty to engage Oregonians in the democratic process. However, only citizens who have the needed knowledge and skills can sustain a democracy. May this toolkit assist educators as they prepare our students for citizenship in the 21st Century. 

Civics: Learn it, use it, share it.
