eLECTIONS is:

  • Accessible: Available for free to anyone with a high-speed internet connection.
  • Multi-sensory: Players see, read, hear and interact with multimedia content from CNN Student News, C-SPAN and History™.
  • Content Rich: Players explore independently how a presidential campaign works - through a fun and interactive experience.
  • Self-directed: Players make the choices that influence the outcome of the game. They continue to learn and explore fundamental election concepts with the "LEARN MORE" content - all at their own pace.
