In keeping with the League of Women Voter’s mission to empower voters and defend democracy, we developed VerifyIt! (https://verifyit.buzz) to appeal to people of all ages but especially to young and future voters – ages 16 to 29 – to encourage them to become informed and active participants in their democracy.
VerifyIt! a free online civics, voting, and news literacy game designed to help young adults be thoughtful readers, informed voters (or future voters), and enlightened citizens who participate fully in our democratic system. The game is easily played on mobile phones, computers, or tablets. There are two ways to play the game – Individual Player (on your own) or Multi-Player (with your friends or in the classroom – virtual or online). News articles and posts are regularly updated and relevant to current events.
VerifyIt! is fast-moving, informative and fun!
Use the game as an icebreaker to introduce Civics, Voting, and News Literacy topics and as a way to get students civically engaged in a fun way – by playing a Game!
Choose pre-designed games on various topics to generate random questions from different categories (includes State-specific voting questions).
Review the results and track players’ progress and knowledge about the topics in real time.
