EC San Diego students in Gary Katz’s advanced class went on a field trip to get a sneak peak into the American voting process in action. Students had the opportunity to observe firsthand the American voting process. To get a better understanding of how the general election works, students took a field trip down to a local polling place to watch and observe people voting. As voters exited the polling place, students approached them on the street and asked voters their opinions on presidential candidates and other ballot initiatives. It was an exciting time for students to be in the United States, since they were able to watch the presidential buzz going on in the media and ask Americans how they felt before, during and after the election.
