The importance of voting
“Your vote is your voice as an American citizen. It's your opportunity to be heard, to hold elected officials accountable for their elections and to have a say in important issues that affect your community. On Election Day, every vote matters”. Anonymous
Election Day is a standout amongst the most energizing days of the year. Our country meets up to choose a leader who will speak to us on the worldwide stage for the following four years. We will choose a leader that will remain for our rights as natives, students, representatives and businesses. We will choose a leader that will ideally stay

“Deciding which party to vote for is now essentially a rational exercise?” (25 marks)
Over recent years the way people have voted has changed drastically, as the electorate are no longer voting simply for the party in which they have been brought up to support or the party with which they identify themselves with. E.g. People in the North East identifying with the Labour party. This could be caused by class dealignment. This is likely to be the case as evidence shows that there is a great decrease in the percentage of people who vote by party identification. Which has fallen from 45% in 1964 to 10% in 2010, it becoming apparent that voting may be becoming an issue of rational exercise

Historical Turning Points (1865-1900)
Reconstruction was the period shortly after the Civil War which involved the reconstruction of the Union and the Southern states. This was a crucial era for America as there were several turning points during this period. The two historical turning points that I found highly important are the right to vote for the African Americans, and granting freedom to the slaves. The African Americans faced severe discrimination for voting rights and granting this right proved to be a turning point in the history of the country (Finkelman, 2006). The abolition of slavery also proved to be crucial point as it facilitated the development in America and freedom of slaves.

is that they do not provide voting rights for the shareholder.
In many ways, a preferred security works like a hybrid of a stock and bond. The face value of the asset is not going to fluctuate very much, thus leaving out the possibility for a windfall profit. In exchange, the holder of a preferred security will enjoy a steady stream of guaranteed dividend payments. It also provides the peace of mind knowing that your claims to assets will have priority if the company ever goes bankrupt.
As an investment, I would choose common stock. Although the risk can be higher, there is a greater potential to experience a very large profit. If I was a significant shareholder in a company, I would choose common stock because it provides voting rights that can be used to vote on corporate affairs. This provides the shareholder with the ability to have influence over corporate affairs. Ideally, a diversified portfolio will contain a variety of common and preferred stocks spread out the risks and rewards evenly.

Learning about constitutional reforms.
Constitutional reform is a process whereby the fundamental nature of the system of government is changed or where a change is proposed. In the UK this may also involve the process of codification. Since 1997 there has been many key reforms that have made UK more democratic by a large amount and sometimes not so much if at all.
Firstly the House of Lords reform where the voting rights of most hereditary peers was abolished. This makes the UK less undemocratic rather then more democratic. This is due to the fact that the House of Lords as a whole is an unelected chamber and therefore undemocratic, however by removing the voting rights of some

Publicity and Electioneering Activities
It is important that a candidate becomes well known in the area they are hoping to represent and to this end they will often undertake a great deal of publicity work, such as leafleting houses, displaying posters, and canvassing door-to-door for votes. Publicity costs money and so the more wealthy parties will have an advantage. In addition, during a general election you will often see party political broadcasts for the main parties outlining their policies. This is because they can afford publicity campaigns that include film-making.

Most crowdsourcing is covered by four categories: crowd wisdom, crowd creation, crowd voting and crowd funding. Crowd wisdom or collective intelligence is a common form of crowdsourcing where a group is gathered with conditions and crowd knowledge is shared. Examples are an employee suggestion box or idea jams. Wikipedia utilizes crowd wisdom. Crowd creation is when a business turns to the public to actually create or co-create a product/service. The open source moment is a case of crowd creation. Crowd voting uses the crowd’s vote to organize vast information. Reality TV shows, like American Idol, use crowd voting to eliminate unfavorable

that the thirteenth amendment to the United States constitution outlawed slavery and involuntary servitude. Even though this amendment ended slavery, it took much more than a war to change the status of African Americans in America. Over the course of nearly 100 years, African Americans still endured much discrimination. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed legislation that outlawed major forms of discrimination based on racial, ethnic, and religious beliefs. This act ended unequal voting rights, segregation in school, work, and public facilities, and was the beginning of equal rights for African Americans. Now, in 2012, African Americans still have to fight discrimination in some places

symbolized what Americans perceived themselves to be--defiant, bold, independent. He was someone with whom they could identify. Thus, Jackson was reelected by an overwhelming majority and was able to transfer that loyalty to his successor, a man who hardly lived up to the image. But all this left a curious question unanswered. Was this new democracy voting for leaders whose programs they favored or, rather, for images that could be altered and manipulated almost at will? The answer was essential for the future of American politics, and the election of 1840 gave the nation a clue.

Much of American election law is purposely written to discourage non-major party candidates. Republicans and Democrats regularly act in a bipartisan way in this matter. That is, the two major parties find common ground and work together here.

Powers of House of Commons and the House of Lords
The House of Commons has, theoretically, a massive amount of formal power.
It has a sovereign legislature, and can make, amend or un-make any law it wishes, and can be only delayed by the House of Lords. Can remove the government of the day in a vote of confidence. E.g. 1979 vote of no confidence in James Callaghan's Labour government.
However, in reality it has only a limited influence over legislation due to executive domination of the House of Commons: the Westminster voting system offers the government majority control over the Commons and the party discipline system allows ministers to control backbenchers.

Freedom comes from Old English freedom, meaning, "freedom, state of free will; charter, emancipation, deliverance” (Online Etymology Dictionary). Freedom includes possessing the ability to make a choice for one’s self. For example, the Black man walking down the street can choose to leave his two friends to stop and get coffee without being questioned solely because he simply wanted to buy coffee. Maybe it is Election Day and he made up his mind on the candidate best suited to hold a specific office. He is free to venture to his designated voting poll, and in personal privacy, cast his vote in peace because his personal choice of who to vote for is respected. One

An instrument that signifies an ownership position (called equity) in a corporation, and represents a claim on its proportional share in the corporation's assets and profits. Ownership in the company is determined by the number of shares a person owns divided by the total number of shares outstanding.

A great way to help legalize gay marriage in each state so it can’t get changed is by making a case with the supreme court of each state petitioning for the right to marry, because the supreme court already knows it is a violation of someone’s civil rights to say no the case would get passed. The only reason they do not have gay marriage in so many states is because people haven’t been taking it to the Supreme Court which is the final law, they just been voting on it.

see their nations as being equal to England rather than its regions. Devolution avoided this.
However devolution does have some flaws. Less than ten years after devolution began there are complaints that the system is undemocratic, as England's representatives in the UK Parliament (which retains full control over England) have been over-ruled on occasion by Scottish & Welsh MPs voting on issues that do not apply in their home nations.
There is also debate about the merits of devolution verses the traditional federalism used in Canada: French-speaking Quebec wants more powers than the nine English-speaking provinces, and recognition that Canada is a union of 2 nations, Anglo and Francophone. Asymmetrical autonomy (as featured in British & Spanish devolution) would arguably allow this while maintaining the unity and stability of the Canadian state.

Citizens are connected in the three divisions of government by voting, working on campaigns, keeping the legislators informed, and making their views understood.
