  • Which theory do you think better explains the exercise of power in the United States? Please provide an example to justify your response.
  1. Voting: Voter turnout in the United States is lower than most other democracies in the world.

Week 9 Instructor Insights is REQUIRED

Class, please review the short video on voting in the United States–this is a very brief history of voting–but an important series of events that involved permitting and denying certain groups the opportunity to vote. Please review the video in its entirety, provide a brief summary of the key point and post your thoughts in the weekly discussion section of the class.
