I feel that even if I hadn't voted for Obama, I would still have been so amazed that he brought the younger generations to the polls in record numbers. My children are in 3rd grade and Kindergarten and their school as a whole in each grade taught the children all about the election and why we have them and then held a mock election and the kids got to vote. Obama won in a land slide, but it was still amazing to me that as small children they are being introduced into politics. Our kiddos came with us to the polls and were SO excited to be there and a part of such an exciting thing. NO BASHING PLEASE...THIS IS JUST SOMETHING POSITIVE AND I FELT LIKE SHARING IT. IF YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING NICE, PLEASE PASS THIS QUESTION BY. THANK YOU ALL.
I do like that many schools were actually informing the kids about the election process this election cycle. I did this with my kids (we homeschool) and had a great time learning about the parties, the process of the elections and the electoral process. I even took my kids with me when I voted and the election workers were great! They took the time to explain it to my children as well (oh, they're in 3rd and 2nd grades)! We also did the Nickelodeon "Kids pick the president." They really enjoyed that!

My 6 year old went with me to the polls. It was also the first time my daughter and her boyfriend got to vote in a presidential election. They were very excited. We took pictures and everything. I wouldn't attribute it to Obama, though. My daughter did a lot of volunteer work on campus for the Republican party. She said their office was very busy. It was just a very exciting election.
