Transcript of Civic Literacy: By Peter Caroline

Civic Literacy civic literacy is participating in one's community or greater society One main part of Civic Literacy is voting. Voting is an important aspect of determining who runs our nation and what will become of its people. In this presentation, I will be discussing three points of voting One of the first points of voting is registering In order to participate in voting, one must first prove that they are a legitimate citizen. They do this by registering to vote When you register, you sign legal documents stating that:
you are a citizen of the United States
you have lived in a state for at least 30 days
you will be at least 18 years of age by the next general election
you are not registered to vote in another state or county
if you have been convicted of a felony, your rights as a citizen have been restored You can go to your local Office of Registrar to find out more information on voter registration, find out if you are eligible to vote, and fill out registration forms Another part of civic literacy is supporting your candidates. There are usually two candidates running for office, whether it is mayor, president, senate, etc. These candidates may belong to different political parties. Certain parties have different views on how a community or nation should be run. Find out which party is best for you. Once you've figured out what party you support, begin helping your candidate get elected. Spread word about how your candidate benifits others and attend certain political functions, such as debates, press conferences, and speeches. This can really help your candidate get elected. vs LOL Romney! The last point of civic literacy is voting Voting is when you go to your designated voting area (school, business, store), you fill out a ballot for who you want to be elected, and you sit back and wait for the the results. Everyone should vote. That is why democracy was formed: to give people the right to have a say in what goes on in government. That is what civic literacy is all about. Many groups of people suffered and died so that future generations would have the right to vote. So, show good civic literacy and....... VOTE!
