Most 16 year old kids dont know much about or learn much about the presidental election to be able to vote. I feel the voting age 18 is a little risky itself and going lower is just unprofessional. Judges are comparing our country to diffrent countries like our rules and presidents are the same. My arguement is to keep the voting age at 18 years old. We need votes from people that understand everything about the election.
Americans ask, “Why do we vote?” It’s really a silly question isn’t it? This is a serious issue, many people believe that their vote doesn’t count and will not affect the presidential election. These people then complain about the way things are. “Your vote is your voice.” Americans vote to tell all government officials and “lawmakers how they feel about education, public safety, social security, health care, and other important issues.” The entire community depends on voting to change and add in new rules, change things within our community. Voting puts change into effect.
They are not aware of the military service they could be required to serve, or they would be require to serve as a jury. Many of them are surprised to receive summons to be part of a jury selection once they become US citizens. Overall, the expectation of becoming a US citizen is not as clear as it should be. If we could encourage loyalty, community and political participation as part of the citizenship requirements, I strongly believe more new US citizens would participate and become involved in the community, making the US a stronger
Without competitiveness, we would lose many battles. If people were not competitive, there would be no reason to try to prove a point or anything because that takes being competitive. Even the president is competitive. he or she has to be because they have a rival they have to compete against. There is competition in every election.
In America, one of the best ways we can voice our opinions and contribute to society is by casting a vote. Local, state and national elections allow citizens to participate in the shaping of our future. The youth of America play a big role in this country, as we are the future. However, the participation of young people in the voting process is absent in recent years. Martin P. Wattenberg discusses this topic in Is Voting For Young People, a compelling text which dives into the possible reasons young people feel less and less inclined to vote over the years.
Therefore, your vote does count within your state” (Zen College Life). See, your vote does count based on popular vote within your state. To chose not to vote will lead us to loosing our rights as United States citizen. Some people simply don 't vote because they don 't know anything about politics. Before elections in a few months give yourself some time.
But if obtaining entry to the United States legally were as simple as pie then there would be no need for coyotes to cross groups of immigrants through the border. There would also be no need to keep the border patrol heavily armed with authorities nor massive unwanted deaths Unfortunately, this is not the case. Many people who have tried to gain legal entrance to the United States have been denied or their application stumbles upon unexpected problems. To obtain a visa to enter the states, there are many requirements that an applicant must meet to qualify for a visa. Due to those requirements, many immigrants face difficulty applying for a visa or are completely discouraged.
First of all, I want to start off by saying that we don’t actually vote for the candidates themselves, but for electors who cast their ballots on our behalf into the electoral college . To vote in the United States you have to be at least 18 years old, a U.S citizen and be registered to vote. Voting is typically a problem in the U.S because so few actually vote. Voting can be affected by many factors, including: Education, Ethnicity, Age and Wealth . People who are less educated and poor aren’t as likely to show up versus those who are educated and adequately wealthy.
Everyone has the right to vote, but many don’t take that opportunity. In the article “Should Voting Be Mandatory?” Eric Liu tells us that “mandatory voting would prompt more Americans to pay attention to the choices;” people usually never pay attention to their choices, and then complain about it later when everything has already happened. (Par 5). Mandatory voting means that every citizen of the age of 18 and above that has a right to vote must vote. The thing that confuses me the most is that the people from The Civil Rights Movement fought so hard for equal voting rights, but the modern American citizens’ still don’t try to vote even though now all the citizens’ can vote.
Political knowledge is needed to be president and not everyone has the political knowledge that is needed. Being president involves an endless amount of work and not everyone can put in the amount of work it takes to be president. William Taft had the political knowledge and effort that it takes to be president, although that was not his dream. Taft fulfilled his wife’s dream by being president, but he was not happy while serving as president. While Taft served as president he made major accomplishments, but he was not truly happy until he became chief
In Feinberg’s book, she provides evidence of, “In about one-third of the state 's, laws require electors to cast their votes, known as electoral votes, for the candidate who won the vote of the people on Election Day” (43). Most states have laws that make them vote for the popular vote. In other states, it is just expected for them to vote for the most popular, although they may not.
Felon Rights: Many people take voting for granted; many will argue that voting is a privilege not a right, as this is true among many counties. Here in the United States everyone at the age of eighteen gains their right to vote. Right now roughly 4 Million Americans will not be allowed to Vote in the United States. These people are felons that have served their debt to society. If someone is a U.S. Citizen, working, paying taxes, and coexisting in a community they have the right to vote.
The democrats have stayed with this system more so than the republicans because Nixon and Reagan buried their democrat rivals in the general elections and won by landslides so, they decided that when they have a candidate that they know will not stand up well against the rival party, that they have the ability to impact who gets nominated and possibly field a more successful candidate. If I would have been asked this question prior to this election, I probably would have said “Get rid of the superdelgates,” but now I’m not 100% sure. With a candidate like Trump, you see that he has a great voter following, more than anyone thought would ever take him seriously. Imagine if the Democratic Party had a candidate like Trump (some see Bernie Sanders as a “grassroots activist” in the Democratic Party although Bernie is not emotionally and negatively divisive). Trump may take the popular vote but, he may not get the “unpledged" delegates (Republican Party) or enough total delegates to get the nomination and for me, that would be a “pro” for the “super or “unpledged” delegate
The twenty second amendment created term limits for the president and the twenty eighth amendment should create term limits for congress. In today 's society, especially the younger generation, everyone is so worried about social issues that rarely do they take the time to see who is enabling the nation, let alone vote for congressmen. While it may not be correct to not pay attention to government officials it 's unfortunately what is happening. Politicians are corrupt and the more time they spend in office the more they begin to care more about legacy than making this nation great. In an ideal word the American citizens would take the time to educate themselves on political officials and make informed votes, but that 's not what is
Every citizen has the right to vote, but not everyone does these days. It’s important that all people vote in the country and compulsory voting will assure that, because voting is not just a right, it’s a responsibility like Jury duty. Throughout the history voting laws had changed from time to time and from country to country and till now 30 countries around the world had used compulsory voting and got effective results and their countries developed due to good elections that were built in people’s opinion. Voting is considered like paying taxes nowadays, even though it is a responsibility and a duty for them to do towards their country, some people support it and others don’t. The advocates of the compulsory voting argue that
