Review of the Brainpop Movie on Voting.

Here are some facts you need to know about voting in the United States. Voting is a right. Every American citizen has a right to vote. Voting is also a responsibility. As a citizen in a democracy you get to choose your leaders. That is what our government is called a democracy. Democracy means government by the people for the people. The people choose their representatives in the government.

In a way the President of the United States and the Congress, the Senate and the House of representatives work for us. We pay them and give them money to run the country through tax dollars. They use our taxes to run schools, pay police, build roads and many other things .

On Election Day citizens go to vote in their state for the candidates. In order to vote you must be 18 years of age, you must live in the state you are voting in, and you must be a United States citizen.

If you cannot get to the polls you can vote with what is called absentee ballot. Reason they would grant you an absentee ballot would be if you were traveling out of state on Election day, if you were going to college in another state, if you were sick, or if you are handicapped.

A verbal quiz will follow.

    I have seen a great deal of useful items on your web site about pcs. However, I’ve the viewpoint that laptops are still not nearly powerful enough to be a sensible choice if you typically do things that require plenty of power, for example video editing. But for world wide web surfing, statement processing, and quite a few other frequent computer work they are just fine, provided you cannot mind the little screen size. Many thanks for sharing your notions.
