I think one of the best assignments I've had this year was writing an advertisement to get people to vote. The ad had to include the words:
Absentee Ballot Congressional District
General Elections Nominee
Platforms Political Party
Referendum and Suffrage
I thought I did a pretty good job (if I may say so myself!):
Have you voted yet?
Come to the referendum and hear your favorite candidate speak. Candidates will share their platforms and you can hear the plans that they have for your congressional district. Take advantage of your suffrage and come vote.
You can vote in the primary election, you can vote in the gubernatorial election, and you can vote in the general election! Take advantage of the right to vote and decide who will govern your country! Vote for the nominee of your political party!
Don't forget; if you are unable to attend the election at your local polling place, absentee ballots are available.
Price and participation may vary. Must be a US citizen of at least 18 to be eligible. Cannot have incomplete confinement or parole (if convicted of a felony), and must have registered six days prior to election.
We'll see you at the polls!
