Review the Chapter 04 PowerPoint presentation, which can be found under Modules.
2- This assignment will focus on your ability to analyze the text content and subsequent information provided. Your responses should rely on facts and real-world examples. While opinion is fine, your responses should rely on facts and real-world examples. It is your understanding of the factual content that I am looking for versus your opinion. There will be times when you will be asked for your opinion, but our collective goal is to have a better understanding of how our government works.
3- Submit your response by replying below. You must post your complete answer before you will gain access to the responses made by your peers. Respond to each question in a separate paragraph. Do not include the questions. Please see the Submission Criteria section above before responding.
The straight-party voting option allows voters to vote for all candidates affiliated with a single political party by checking one box on a ballot. Most states do not allow straight-party voting, and, in 2020, Texas will eliminate the option from its ballots.
Define what is meant by straight-party voting (also known as straight-ticket voting) and briefly explain why it is popular with voters.
If straight-party voting is popular with voters, why do so few states allow it?
Why did Republicans in the state legislature vote to end straight-party voting in Texas?
What are the pros and cons of straight-party voting, not for the parties but for the voters?
4- Respond to at least 2 of your class peers and respectfully engage in a discussion based on their responses. Where possible try to select peers without a response from anyone. The goal is to analyze responses and support or respectfully counter.
