Can you tell me about yourself?

Hello, my name is Millie Gregg. I am 19 years old and I am a charity worker. I run a charity to help the enviroment and save our planet. I am still learning abut the election but there are already many rules which are unfair in my opinion like, how comes i knew how to drive at 16 but only got to vote at 18. Anyway it is a big deal but whoever wins will hopefully help our planet. Also I hope they can help childrens education, I am still young and I have many bold ideas for the future.

How do you feel about tomorrow's election?

I feel quite tense since the election is a big deal and whoever gets picked will look after our country and make all the desicions. But I am also relieved as we will finally get to know the results. To be honest I am really conflicted, I feel excited but nervous. But I also feel happy that there will be no more big fuss about it. I am hoping for Joe Biden as i thnk his plan for the envioment is extraordinary and I admire his ambitions. For now all we can do is wait and see what the future holds.

Can you explain why some people may not vote?

The reason some people may not vote is because they are non citizen, ex-felons and under 18. However there are many silly excuses of why people can't vote eg: I didn't vote because I find both candidates really annoying to it was raining so I didn't want to get wet. These are really silly reasons and some people forget they can do a postal vote. I understand why some people may not vote iPrince they may think there vote is less important then others but it is not. The electoral college points make people feel unequal and it is one thing I dislike. But everybody is equal. Plus your voice deserves to be heard it is your opinion and that is your choice.

How powerful do you think your vote is?

I live in North Carolina which is worth 15 electoral points which is quite a lot. In my opinion the electoral college is quite confusing and annoying it makes you feel less important then others when everyone should be equal. I think my vote is quite powerful and could make a big difference in the score. But I dislike the electoral college. Overall I think my vote is powerful(ish).

Why should people vote tomorrow?

I think people should vote tomorrow as your vote will make a difference even if it is a tiny one. This person will be the leader for your future and for generations ahead. Your vote will help your country and you. Think about it this person will make the desicions for you country and your life. You have the chance that some people don't have so use your shot let your voice be heard. You should use your vote wisely.

How do you feel about the voting system in America?

I think it is quite unfair because of the electoral college but I also think it is quite confusing. I have only vo
