Federal Judge to Florida: Why Aren't More People Registered?
(scroll down towards the bottom of the page)
Summary: In Florida 25,000 voters have not been registered. Luckily, Judge Mark Walker has argued to extend the deadline, because of hurricane Matthew. The reason that was reported for people being unregistered was that they have insufficient information or incorrect addresses. Since the extension, 13,000 more people that were previously unregistered, are registered. This process is still continuing.
Connection: This connects to the current presidential election,the debate videos we were assigned to watch, and our class discussions about the election.
Questions: The situation of people being unregistered and not voting is very prevalent currently. This problem is not just in Florida.
Do you think that every adult should be "required" to vote?
Do you think the citizens that don't vote influence the election?
