Welcome! localhost/vocabulary and Vocabulary University® celebrates regional and national fall elections with a 12-strip Vocons® vocabulary comic strip story. In addition, participants can print out:

Our non-commercial election site combines visual puzzles pertaining to elections in order to enhance vocabulary acquisition. The 12 election-related vocabulary words tell the story of the Candidate Sam Campaign.
- The campaign story:
Sam sees that Herb, a very ELOQUENT speaker, is campaigning without challenge or CONTROVERSY. Sam decides to DECLARE himself a CANDIDATE. After CANVASING the electorate he chooses various STRATEGIES to win (including a great debate with Herb where some in the audience said "Bunk!"). Voters react negatively to Sam's message of, "If we don't go slow down our spending, I will VETO everything."
The ADVERSE election results disappoint Sam. However, he is a GRACIOUS loser in the face of Herb's JUBILENT victory celebration. It's also clear that Sam is the one with CHARISMA.
