how powerful do you think your vote is ------------------+--

How do you feel about tomorrow's election?

I feel nervous as in my opinion Donald trump, who despite has been president for 4 years, doesn't have the right mindset that I'm looking for to be the president of the United States of America. I think this as last election he made a string of promises that for one wouldn't benefit the country in any way (making a wall to separate us from Mexico and south america) and for two some of the promises weren't even kept .

Can you explain why some people may not vote tomorrow?

Some people may not vote as they may feel that there vote dosen't have any value. For example, in Rhode Island ( the state that has the lowest amount of electoral college points) the voting statistics -how many people vote- has stayed generally the same since 1994 to 2018 65% to 48% I belive this is due to the incredibly low amount of electoral college points that it's worth. But for say New York ( the second largest state ) has a much higher percentage - generaly staying around 71 %. I think this is due to the durastically higher amount of electoral college points that it's worth (29) which gives the citizens who live there a much larger reason to vote

How powerful do you think your vote is?

Personaly I feel that my vote is very powerful because my state that i live in has the very highest amount of electoral college points(55 )up for grabs for both presidential parties . This Just further emphasises me to vote . Also,my state is what's known as a swing state ( a state that usually doesn't vote for the same party time and time again) this also further convinces me that my vote is very powerful and shouldn't go to waste.

Why should people vote tomorrow ?

I believe that people should defonately vote tomorrow as if they didn't it wouldnt really compare to an election . It would more compare to say a coin flip there's no way for it to 100 percent land on the one you want it to it would just be luck.But to prevent this from happening all citizens in America 100% have to vote Because if someone says"my vote doesn't matter there are millions of Americans voting mine won't matter," They are completely wrong as there are millions out there not voting for the party they want in which could potentially end up with the president ,that you dont want in, being elected and making descisions that won't benefit anyone.

what adout presidency. would you ever run for president?why?

For me I would never vote as being the president of America is one of the most important jobs on the planet and requires lots of responsibility and also it needs someone with a very cool head and doesn't crack under pressure when a major problem is affecting their country.

How do you feel about the voting system in America?

Personaly I feel that the voting system is a good idea but isn't necessarily fair. I feel like to make it fair instead of having it if half of a state votes for one party that party gets all the points. I feel that it should be say if a quarter of Texas votes Trump then he should get 25% of the points that Texas is worth because if it stays the same and this happens it would cancel out millions of votes just because the other party got more than half of the vote .

Anyways Thank you for reading

    I think you've done very well to explain how your character feels about the voting system and you've supported your suggestions with evidence from the voting statistics, well done!
