I must answer this question in depth, maybe in the format of PEEL because he specifically told us he does not want a paragraph full of facts right after the other. I must state the fact and explain how and why. I will be graded on this question alone, and I really need to get a 5/5!

First, read the questions in the assessment below so you will have a general idea of what you will be looking for in the article. Next, open and read the attached PDF article. Answers to the questions should be written in accurate, detailed, and complete sentences (2-4 per question).

1. Describe the issue (the underlying problem) the article discusses and describe the proposed solution.
2. Describe the information that is presented as evidence in the article that demonstrates the need to address the issue.
3. Describe any projected/expected outcomes that are used to justify the solution proposed in the article.
4. Based upon your understanding of the policy proposal in this article, state whether you support/oppose the policy proposed (or even offer a different policy choice) and then explain why you take that position. (HINT: you might want to wait to answer this question last so you have completely thought about all the nuances of this assignment from the other questions!)
5. Describe problems the issue creates for individuals (How might you or someone else be personally affected by the issue?).
6. Evaluate the positive and negative effects the proposed solution may have on individuals.
7. Explain if and how the proposed solution supports values of democracy, such as liberty, equality, justice, independence, opportunity, and freedom.
8. Describe ways individuals (you and/or others) might change their community involvement or political participation if this proposed solution was adopted.

What are some of the significant reasons or causes for the low voter turnout in America? Describe the  differences in the levels of voter turnout for presidential as opposed to other types of elections such as for  the presidency, Congress, state officials and local governments. Is voter apathy and alienation such a deeply rooted problem  in American that increasing voter turnout might prove to be very difficult?

What do you propose as ways to increase voter participation in elections? Will new technologies such as the Internet offer solutions to the low voter turnout in America? Does early voting increase voter participation?  Finally, if voter turnout is increased in the future, will that lead to an improvement of the American governmental system? That is, will government function better if more people participate in elections than do now? Was there a larger (or smaller) turnout for the November 2020 election than the 2016 presidential election? Why or why not? Which political party, if either, will benefit from the level of voter participation during the 2020 presidential and  congressional elections.
