This mixed-method study looks at the voting motivations and behaviors of sixty-two pre-service teachers. Responses from frequent, infrequent and nonvoting teachers were compared, to gain an understanding of how to impact the viewpoints and behaviors of nonvoting or infrequent voting pre-service teachers. The data revealed significant differences between the voting frequency groups in two variables. Results will be shared with Student California Teachers Association and California Teachers Association.
