Why just study history, when you can make it?
Close Up’s Premier Election Series provides three exciting programs offered only once every four years–so don’t miss out!
Close Up’s Premier Election Series not only gives students the chance to witness history as it unfolds, but also the opportunity to delve into the most important and poignant issues facing our nation. Like our Washington, DC Program, our Election Series brings students face-to-face with the people and institutions that impact policy decisions in and around Washington. They will also learn about our election process first-hand! As only Close Up can do, we draw upon our educational partnerships and nearly 50 years of experience to provide hands-on, interactive discussions with an emphasis on specific policy issues.

I plan to speak to everyone about the experience for students here. The curricular component has been rigorous and productive.
Close Up is AMAZING…
I could not recommend it more highly. I took a group of 10 juniors as a first year teacher and all nerves I had were alleviated by my rep and the organization itself. It was THE smoothest process and week ever. You should never pass up an opportunity to experience Close Up!!!
Close Up made me realize how SIGNIFICANT my thoughts and views are…
Although everyone will not always agree, everyone has a voice and needs to be heard.
Close Up was the GREATEST experience of my life!..
It has inspired me to become a political leader in this great country. I have not only gained an even greater expansion of knowledge in the area of politics, but I have also gained lifelong friends.
