Kids get a close-up look at the political process and explore all aspects of an election -- from the day Parliament is dissolved to the day after the polls close. Granfield charts the evolution of elections to the present day, when a candidate's media image can make or break the campaign. Canada Votes lets kids in on how voting lists are now compiled electronically, what issue the last national referendum decided and more.
