Rock the Vote!
It's hard to avoid the election frenzy that has fallen over our country. Yes, it's that time of year again, time to cast our ballots in the spirit of American democracy. As we move into the final stretch in the race toward the White House, it's time to make our collective voice heard. Who will win the Presidency: Obama or McCain? It is the duty of each American citizen to decide.
That's why I have decided to cover the voting event at my local election center, Walden Woods Elementary School in Clinton, MD. I want to evaluate the turnout, including diversity amongst the voters, assess the atmosphere, and interview as many voters as possible. I'll ask questions about the wait to vote, what issues are most important to each voter, who the voters support, and who they think will win the election. As a virgin voter, I want to learn more about the voting process as I rock the vote for the first time.
