11/4/2010 Homework: Interview a Voter

Over your long weekend, I'd like you to complete the following assignment on loose leaf paper. Answer each question in complete sentences.
  1. Identify a person you know who voted in Tuesday's election. Record his/her name. (3 points)
  2. Write 5 questions to ask this person. (5 points) These should NOT be "yes" or "no" questions. You're want to find out actual information. You should ask your chosen voter about things like:
    1. the party he/she belongs to, if any
    2. who he/she voted for (if he is comfortable telling you) and why
    3. what issues he/she is most interested in (ex: health care, the economy, etc.) and why
    4. why he/she votes
    5. is he/she happy with the results of the election and why
    6. make up your own questions, as long as they are topical!
  3. Interview your voter using the questions you wrote. Write down EXACTLY what the person says in his/her response to your question. (7 points)
  4. Bring the assignment to class on Monday. Keep it on your desk so that you can share your results.
