Democratic governments exist to help citizens with differing opinions find common ground – the place where people’s thoughts, opinions, and beliefs intersect. Whether it’s Congress, your state, or the local town council, elected leaders often have to make trade-offs - giving up some things they favor to gain support for others. In this badge, investigate how our government does it – and how you can, too.
