My Idea
What's the point of voting?
How It Works
A voting PSA will be created to encourage the public, especially the youngest voting population, to vote. They will be informed on the rights and responsibilities of voting, the role of a voter, and why their vote does count. The PSA will also have interviews from voters, their experiences, and their feelings on their role in the government through voting.

The student will: 1. Create a PSA on the right and responsibility of voting 2. Define responsibility & right 3. Explain the need for voting and the need for being educated as a voter on the issues. 4. Give examples of an educated voter
