1: w | The Importance of Voting

2: Why should you vote? You should vote so you can help decide who you want to run your country and how you want your future to be. | Each year their are always people who run to be in charge of something such as a mayor. They tell us the things that they will do for us and we choose to vote for the person who we think will give us what we want. | Just because we vote it doesn't mean that we will get what we want out of it all the time. Our votes can help things like laws change, so when something goes wrong and you choose to not vote you can only blame yourself because every vote makes a difference.

4: How do you register to vote? To register you must be a citizen of the U.S. Go to the local town hall in the state of North Carolina. Bring your ID and proof of residence. You must be over 18. The town clerk's office is where you go to register. Tell clerk that you need to register to vote, and the clerk will give you a form to fill out. With that information you have no reason to not vote. Its quite simple.

6: P | p | Political Party Should You Be? | The united states has a lot of different political parties but the main to are Republicans and Democrats. You it's up to you to claim which ever one you want to be ladled as you can chose to be neither if you like. | Republicans Republicans are more conservative. They rely on them selves more than the government and want to handle their own problems with little government interference . They believe more strongly in property rights and less strongly in well-fare rights, holding economic equity above equality. Many republicans are religious and tend to hold to the morals characterizing the Founding Fathers, which results in general disapproval of abortions and, for some, gay marriage. | DemoCrats Democrats are more liberal. They believe in a larger federal government, and implement tax plans to try to help those that are poor. They believe the government must look for the greater good above the individual person in terms of welfare and do what is necessary to make the populace more equal. They be live some rules are unfair and should be changed must evolve over time, and, therefore, tend to support and gay marriage.

7: Both parties have the same voting rights and are not forced to only vote on their party they can still choose either the Republican or DemoCrat so its fair.
