Week 4 Discussion (American Government)
You are a county supervisor of elections and have been tasked to develop a policy to increase voter turnout. Prepare an 8–10 slide PowerPoint presentation of your proposed policy.
Post your presentation to the Discussion Area with a short introduction. Spend time reviewing other students’ presentations. Comment on at least 2 students’ presentations. Comment on the suggestions provided by your fellow classmates that you believe would be effective strategies to increase voter turnout.
Review the comments provided by your fellow students and answer the following questions:
- After reading your fellow student’s presentations, what features of their plans would you incorporate into your approach?
- What do other “democratic” countries do to encourage voter participation?
Start reviewing and responding to your classmates as early in the week as possible. Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of mutual understanding. Be sure to engage and reflect upon important text concepts and course notes within your responses. In order for this to be a discussion, it is very important that we “converse” with one another. Be sure to engage and respond to your classmate’s posts in a timely, thoughtful manner.
