An interview with an American citizen

Featured Image US Election 8

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

Hello, I'm Patrick Moon Walker and I am 79 years old. I previously worked as a farmer and my main concern with the upcoming election is climate change and protecting agriculture and the environment. I currently live in Texas which is worth 55 electoral votes. I usually vote democrat and this year I am voting for Biden.

How do you feel about tomorrow's election?

I feel excited because I want to see which candidate is voted in- I hope it's Biden.

Why should people vote tomorrow?

People should vote because your vote could make all the difference in which candidate is voted in. Also, lots of people don't vote which is a waste of power. We have the power to have our say and we should take this opportunity.

How powerful is your vote?

I feel that my vote is very powerful because I am from Texas and my state is worth lots of electoral votes and could make a lot of difference.

Can you explain why some people don't vote?

Some people feel that their vote is insignificant, but actually every vote counts and can make a difference. Also some people can't vote because the polling stations and unaccessible or are underage.

How do you feel about the American voting system?

I think the democratic system is unfair because it should be a popular vote rather than electoral vote. Every one's vote should be equal and count towards the final decision.
