This bulletin on the use of the schoolhouse as a polling place is divided into two sections. Part I, Use of Schoolhouse for Political Purposes, explains why this practice is beneficial to the schools (allows youth to witness and understand the civic process) and to the public (it is economical, worthy, appropriate, convenient, permanent, educative, simplifying, and unifying). Part II, The Public-School Principal as the Voting Clerk, provides details on the duties and responsibilities of a principal serving in this capacity. (Contains 5 figures.)
