My interview:

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

Hello my name is Gamora and I am 18 years old. I am a zoo keeper and therefore want the world to be protected and for their to be peace in America.

How do you feel about tomorrows election?

I feel excited because the world will finally be i peace and be protected from the invirememt and there will be no more climate change.

Can you explain why some people might not vote?

People might not vote because they think the person they are voting for won't get many more votes and therefore it is pointless. Also, people is states with less electoral votes may think that their vote is not worth anything.

How powerful do you think your vote is?

I think my vote is powerful because it is worth 100 votes and if loads of people vote for the same candidate, it is likely they will have an advantage.

Why should people vote tomorrow?

People should vote because it is a chance for people to voice their opinions about the running of the country. If people don't vote, a president could be voted in which no one wants. If people do vote, they may be happier with the president who is voted in.

How do you feel about the voting system in America?

I think the democratic system is unfair because each vote should be of equal importance, but in America it is not a popular vote, it is an electroal vote meaning that not everyone's vote counts towards the final decision for who is president.
