In the article ‘Election day in the United States’ published by timeanddate.com, I find it to be very educative as well as informative. The article informs the citizen of the United States when and how they should conduct an election. In the article, American citizens are also informed on what requirements that they should have in order to participate in a national election. In addition to all that, the article has also identified the public offices that should be voted during a national election. At the end of the article, we have also been given a brief background and history of the past election days. I find this article to be very efficient.
On national Election Day, American citizens vote through a popular ballot. These votes are for for that are for public offices candidates. General elections in the United States are done at different levels; national, state, as well as at the local levels. Federal elections in the United States are always held in every numbered year (“Election Day In The United States”). On the other hand, Presidential elections are always held in every four-year interval. Depending on the state and the local laws, elections for states and those for local officials may be conducted in even or odd number years.
The manner in which citizens would vote depends on the state that they live in. For instance, in Oregon voters are received at specified time on the day of the election, and their votes are cast by post (“Election Day In The United States”). In Washington, citizen vote by both post and envelopes that contain their voting papers. In other states, voting is done at a polling station. Here, long queues are formed.
