Citizens interview


Reporter: Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

Citizen: Hello, I'm Tina Johnson and I am a hairdresser.

Reporter: How do you feel about tomorrows election?

Citizen: I feel excited and nervous because I am nervous to see who wins but excited in case the person I voted for, wins the election.

Reporter: Why should people vote tomorrow?

Citizen: I think people should vote tomorrow because then we all get a say on who we want to be President and rule our country.

Reporter: How powerful do you think your vote is?

Citizen: I think my vote is powerful because if we all come together and vote for who we want to be President then there is more chance of the best candidate winning the election.

Reporter: Can you explain why some people might not vote?

Citizen: Some people might not vote because they might be too young to legally vote or if they weren't born in America, then they might not have lived here long enough to be allowed to vote. Another reason could be that people might not think they know enough about the candidates or that their vote will make enough of a difference.

Reporter: Would you ever run for President and why?

Citizen: I wouldn't run for President because I don't think I know enough about how to be a President.

Reporter: How do you feel about the voting system in America?

Citizen: I think it is bad because I don't agree that it is fair to stop people voting if they have not lived here long enough, because who becomes President will still affect their lives.
