POL 296U Campaign Politics

Course Description: How do people get elected to public office? We will explore the regulations governing elections in city, state and national elections. How do campaigns work? What do I need to do to be or help a candidate? How do candidates raise money? What party should I work for and why? These questions hopefully will give you grounding for working actively for a candidate of your choice. The course will be one of civic engagement so that we in part will learn politics by "doing" politics.
