American Voter Interview: FINAL PIECE

Hero US Election

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

Hello, I’m Jayne Blake and I am a 39 year old teacher and I teach at Harvard Law School.

How do you feel about tomorrow’s election?

I feel really excited about the 2020 american election, but at the same time i feel very nervous about it because I don't know who is voting for who so we could have Trump as the president for another 4 years until 2024 (a fairly long time)

Why should people vote tomorrow?

People should vote because their single vote could balance out who is the next president of the united states of america.

How powerful do you think your vote is?

Honestly I think that my vote is very important because, what if : Trump and Biden both have 10,000,000 votes and I vote for Biden then he will have 1 more vote than Trump and will receive all the votes and Biden will be elected.

Can you explain why some people might not vote?

Some people might not vote because they are unable to vote or they do not have a voting poll near them. Some people may feel like their vote is not important but it really is. For example people whose states only have around three or four electoral votes for their states.

What about the presidency? Would you ever run for president? Why?

I personally would not run for president because I think as a working teacher who loves their job I would not be able to take on the job as a leader of a country.

How do you feel about the American voting system?

I do not find it fair because if you win the popular vote then you still have to will the electoral college vote to actually win the presidency.
