Student Council Elections

As we head back to school, it's time to gear up for Student Council elections.  When I first began teaching, I used to hate Student Council elections.  They used to turn into popularity contests, and I used to have parents who would hijack the election by unfairly buying professional posters, and fundraising materials to ensure their student would win the election.  I came up with a curriculum several years ago that prevented those things from occurring in my elections.  As a result, I now look forward to Student Council elections in my room.  I even became a Student Council Teacher Representative because the students who began winning elections actually wanted to do the jobs.  I created this free Student Council Elections lesson to help others experience the same joy.  Enjoy!
