Interview with an America citerzen

Hero US Election

Interviewer: Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

American Citizen: Hello, I am sincere_atom. I am 23 years old and I teach at a school.

Interviewer: How do you feel about tommorows election?

American Citizen: I feel a bit excited and a bit nervous at the same time because I am very curious about who will be the new president.

Interviewer: Why should people vote tommorow?

American Citizen: Peo0ple should vote tommorow because its an oppurtunity for their voices to be heard. They also get more power than they usually may get.

Interviewer: How powerful do you think your vote is?

American Citizen: I think my vote isnt very powerful beacuse my state is only worth three electoral votes and my state usually votes for the republican and I vote for democrats.

Interviewer: Can you explain why some people might not vote tommorow?

American Citizen: Some people might not vote because maybe they are not old enough or maybe they dont like either of the candinates and they dont want to vote.

Interviewer: What about the presidency. Would you ever run for presidentt?

American Citizen: I wouldnt run for president because I am not very wealthy and I was not born in America nor lived here for 14 years so I coulnt run even if I wanted to.

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

American Citizen: I think the democratic system is unfair because states with lower electrol votes wont really make a difference beacuse for example in my state we aren only worth three electrol votes and that is quite a small number. Als9o if you voted democrats and everyone in your state voted republicans your vote would be useless and that would be quite frustrating for yourself.

Interviewer: What do you think is the best way to vote for a new president? The American system or something different?

American Citizen: I think the best way to vote for a new president would be for everyone to pick one of the candinates then at the end of the elction someone would count up all of the votes and the candinate with the most votes wins.

Interviewer: Thank you for answering these questions.

    Thank you for sharing this, sincere_atom - and well done for thinking about how your character might feel about the electoral system because of where they were born and which state they live in. I've given you a star for this.

    his was a very alluring final piece ingenious_forest
    I really enjoyed reading this piece of amazing work.
    Even though this piece of writing was very long i learnt so much about the American voting system and your opinions on the American election.
    I love the fact that you said that the voting system in America was confusing and I agree with that big time you know why because of the POPULAR votes and the ELECTORAL votes t very confusing as you have to count all the popular votes then have to go to some states in America and ask who they would like to vote. And the thing is most of the bigger states turn out to be SWING STATES places and It can be really difficult for them to pick.
    So I strongly agree with you on that valuable point you made well done
