Lowest Voter Turnout Rates Part 1 Individual Righ

Part 1

Reflect: Our political system is characterized by certain fundamental features to include a system of laws, rights, and liberties. The laws, created and supported by the Constitutional framework, are designed to protect and secure the rights and liberties of individuals and groups throughout the United States. However, the government also must provide for the security of its citizens from serious internal and external threats that could cause severe damage to our country. Think about how the need for homeland and national security can create a dilemma where conflicts emerge between these security needs and the demands for civil rights and liberties.

Write: Explain what obligations the U.S. government has towards its citizens and how these obligations impact individual and group rights.

Provide real-world examples to support your explanation, including one personal example from your own experiences.

Using your personal example, explain the position of the two major parties and a third party, regarding the example you presented.

Must be at least 300 words. If you are citing statistics our outside resources, please list the website or the reference entry in APA format.

Part 2

Reflect: The United States has one of the lowest voter turnout rates among modern democratic political systems. During the last decade, many initiatives have been undertaken to increase voter participation, yet concerns about the possibility of election fraud have also increased. Additionally, some political interests feel threatened by the increase in turnout among some traditionally low-turnout ethnic minorities. Several states have recently passed legislation imposing new registration and identification requirements. This has sparked debate about whether these are tactics intended to suppress turnout or to prevent fraud. Think about the media’s role in the election process and how both mass media and social media can impact the election process. How has the media’s role changed in recent years, especially considering President Trump’s stance on “fake news”?

Write: Describe voter ID laws in a state of your choosing. Summarize any recent developments or controversies regarding voter ID laws in the state you have chosen.

Analyze and describe the pros and cons on both sides of the debate about these laws.

Is voter fraud a major problem for our democracy, or are some groups trying to make it harder for some segments of society to vote?

Analyze the impact that media (mass and social) has had in influencing public opinion, specifically regarding voter ID laws.

How was the Trump/Clinton election in 2016 impacted by voter laws and the media?
