I believe that Americans should be required to vote. Compulsory voting allows everyone to have a say about who they think is fit in the government. It allows the polls to be more accurate and the number of votes increase. Required voting allows those who can 't or don 't have time to make it the day or time off work. Requiring people to vote is like a boss requiring his employees to get to work on time, it 's short and easy but also important and effective.
If the people were to elect the president directly, certain situations/problems wouldn’t be as analyzed like the Electoral College analyzes it. (McGraw Hill pg.385) If we were to get rid of the electoral college the states with a higher population would dominate the elections, therefore, leaving the small rural states unnoticed or with no voice. That would be very unfair towards rural areas, the present system gives the state’s power more strength and secures our federal system’s strength. (McGraw Hill pg.385) In order to make our voice be heard toward the candidate of our choice we should participate in campaigns as well as voting. The majority of our population doesn’t take the time to get politically involved and vote, making their opinion towards our government overlooked.
Did you know that on election day you do not vote directly for president. Many people don’t like that they don’t ultimintly decide for president. They however don’t understant that it is there for a quite a few reasons. The first is that the founding fathers created the electoral college, second that it ensures that every state gets a say in who the president is, and number three is that it makes sure that the president is chosen by a majority vote and not a popular vote. When the founding fathers built this country they made the electoral college so that the presadent could be picked by an educated population.
Voter ID laws are two sided, but most Americans feel that it is necessary to prevent voter fraud. Republicans feel that an individual should already have a state ID because this is required by so many government agencies. Unfortunately, the Democrats are the ones to be most likely affected due to their voters’ economic status, disabilities and age. Whereas, Democrats believe that it is a tactic to defer their supporters from voting. Even though voter fraud does occur, it is not as often as one would imagine.
Politicians occupy a very special place in our society. As voters, we choose them to make the rules that we all have to live by, and as taxpayers, we trust them to take some of our money and spend it in a way that benefits us all. It's perhaps unsurprising then, that being a politician is not like any other job. If you're reading this it's because you want to become a politician. Great!
Do you agree with his argument? Explain. With the expansion of market, the number of employees largely grows. The majority of people are employees today. Because they also have the right to vote, they have a great amount of political power.
Another commonly used tactic to cleanse the polls is to put a fictitious name on the ballot to grab at least a chunk of the uneducated or random votes. This practice can generally be agreed upon to be pretty sketchy. It is the equivalent to when voting on propositions, no title or description is given so that voters must memorize every proposition ID. Voting can 't be made into a test, and a government shouldn 't have to distrust their citizens so much to lie to them and practically trick them into voting a way they didn 't intend to (abstention.) Liberty is not only about free choice, but also knowledge.
Voting registration can be confusing if the wrong question is asked and the right answer is given. For citizens that have moved from county to county or from state to state, they may be interested to know if they are still eligible to vote, and the answer is almost always yes, so long as the person can prove residency. But registration itself is painless and takes little more than the presentation of identification. However, state websites and even election boards have proven to be vague about the correct form of identification. Therefore, to prevent registration requirements from preventing you from voting, make it a point to update your voter registration every time you
The puritans believed that the wealth shouldn’t be equal, but is should be drastic either. They got rid of aristocracy, making it so that you could not be born into power. Giving away with the highest class, but they also didn’t allow poor people into their community. They wanted everyone to be able to thrive in their community, so the highest and lowest classes were not allowed in. The puritans did not believe in aristocracy, the thought that if God gave people power and wealth then they deserve that wealth and should be able to enjoy it, but someone born into the power and wealth was not given it by God, so they do not deserve to have it.
In order for this law to be reinforced, there would have to be some sort of punishment if somebody does not cast their vote (Bargmann).Why should a law abiding citizen be penalized for not wanting to have a say in the way their government is lead? There needs to be a shift in the way elections are held so that voting is more convenient to the average American citizen, and so no one is scrutinized for their choice of not expressing their opinion. Compulsory voting should not be required because it would be violating freedom of choice, which would lead in people casting random votes, and there are superior ways of getting people to vote than forcing them to. Requiring American citizens to vote is a violation of freedom of choice, and the way a person can express their opinion. If they are forced to speak their opinion, they could randomly select a candidate, which would sway the election.
One reason that the framers of the constitution included the Electoral College is because they believed people will only vote for people in their own states and basically play favorites. However, in modern democracy it is evident that this system no longer benefits entirely the people of the states’. It must be modified because the restrictions that vary state to state through each election is now unnecessary in today’s society. In a presidential election an electoral vote should count the same as a popular vote no matter the circumstances. The states that remain mutual in a presidential candidacy election, where the populations are evenly divided causes an issue of winning the state
At the age of 18, Americans have the right of voting for who they want to be in charge of our country. Many Americans have different opinions on which candidate they want to see in office; as a result, many are awarded with the candidate they choose. Others may not agree with the outcome of the election, but as a nation, we have to accept the outcome and still work together. People often choose not to vote because they feel their vote does not count towards anything, but one vote could change who wins an election. As citizens of America, we have the right to make the United States a better place.
