how important you think your vote is:
not important————————————-x————————————very important
Hello, you are?
Who Are you going to vote for?
Hm, I think Joe Biden.
Interesting choice. Now, how do you feel about the election?
Well, in all honesty, excited because we might get a new president.
Hmmm, great answer. Next question, why should people vote, tell me your opinion?
They should be excited for a new president, or we could keep Mr.Trump. And also, they should be interested in democracy
Wow, you are passionate about the election?
Yes, I believe strongly in Biden, not so much Trump.
Ok, and why is that?
Well, he is trying to build a wall to separate America from Mexico- if anything, I think we should be re-uniting everyone, not separating them.
Ok, what about the presidentcy. Could you run for president one day?
Well, it depends how you think about it. If I had a choice and good reasons for people to vote for me, yes. But if I tried to become president just beacause I wanted to, nobody would vote for me.
Excellent decision, Elizabeth. Now, next question. How do you feel about the voting system in America?
I think it’s good because the age when you can vote in good and sensible; you have to be 18 or over to vote. But there is one thing I would change, the rule about criminal records. If you have been in prison, you shouldn’t be able to vote or become president. There, that is what I think.
Thankyou, Miss Gillies, for sharing your opinion.
