Rock the Vote

3 questions I have for the class regarding the upcoming election include:

1. How can we get today's youth to understand why becoming an informed voter is necessary?
2. What if one candidate wins the popular vote and the other wins the electoral college?
3. Who is in charge of funding presidential campaigns?

As a proud citizen of the United States, I feel it is my duty to vote in the upcoming presidential election. As a responsible young adult, I want my voice to be heard and my vote to count. Placing my vote on the ballot will allow me to use my voice to chose who I believe will fit best as the next president of our country. Something that tends to shy me away from the voting booth is simply being told that my vote "does not count." This is a common excuse that's rooted in the belief that the Electoral College chooses the President, not the voters. This upcoming election certainly has drawn my attention and I was glued to my television during the presidential debates. I am not fond of either candidates and am very nervous for whats at stake for our country. I am looking forward to voting in the election next week and am ready to continue making changes in our country.

  1. I feel the same way about the feeling of our vote not counting. I am also worried about the future of our country with these two candidates.
    Great Points,
