Introduction to Three Quizzes

Americans have gathered to vote every November for more than two hundred years. The country has changed and grown during that time. So has our Constitution, but the basic system of "government of the people, by the people, and for the people" remains the same. From local mayors on up to presidents and Supreme Court Justices, how do our leaders go about getting their jobs, and do you know what their jobs are about? Try to learn what every good citizen needs to know about American democracy in action.

In this section there are a few terms you will find on your tour. Take three different quizzes to see how much you know before the tour. If you are an expert, you can skip all three quizzes and begin the tour! Let's begin...
