Voting Project By: SaHil, Carter, and JaYden

Many people were split on the idea that one vote equals one vote in our current system and that's because if the electoral college. Many people who leaned conservative or are not as educated in the political field said they believed their vote equals one vote. The more liberal people didn't believe this or were unsure. Many people thought voting process could be improved with means of a country wide holiday on the day of voting to encourage those with work and other priorities to vote and also with more locations for many to access especially the lower class citizens who can't drive to destinations. Many agreed that there should be a form of secondary ID to reduce the rates of voter fraud. Many people disagreed with both candidates of this election making them more willing to not vote. Many somewhat based voting of their dislike of one candidate more than the other. Also many people were against the passing of a simple test because of the former use of the test and the hassle needed to grade the tests slowing the process of voting down.

How to make voting better

We think that voting can be improved by making the process of becoming a U. S. Citizen easier than it is right now. If the process is easier, more people will be allowed to vote. We believe that the voting process does not allow much room for voter fraud. Even if there were voter fraud it would not have a huge effect on the election.
