William Ascherman, 7, a patient at The Children's Hospital in Denver, reads a booklet on how the U.S. government works, after hospital volunteers drop off an "absentee ballot" for him so he can experience the act of voting on election day, November 1, 2005. The hospital and Kids Voting Denver offered patients and other kids at the hospital an opportunity to experience voting, and gave absentee ballots to young patients who couldn't come to the lobby to vote. The non-profit group, Kids Voting Denver, exposes children to civic issues and the voting process in hopes of getting the children and their parents interested in elections. Kids had the choice of voting on the real issues facing Denver voters, or if they were too young to read, kids could just vote for a drawing of a boy or a girl.
