voter registration procedure/requirements

(1) be at least 18 years of age at the time of the next election, (2) being a U.S. citizen and (3) be a resident of the jurisdiction where the individual is registering. Under federal law, every state must allow residents to register to vote at least 30 days before Election Day, though many states extend the deadline to register. Additionally, in some states individuals who have been convicted of a felony or have been found by a court to be incompetent may be ineligible to vote.

There are many ways to register to vote. The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (“the Motor Voter Act”) offers individuals the opportunity to register to vote when they apply for or renew a driver’s license or you can mail in a registration using a federal mail-in form.


voter behavior

  1. most Americans are able to vote but some don't for multiple reasons like they do not feel like their vote counts,some feel like they are too busy,and some are just apathetic and just simply don't want to.
  2. there are optional ways to fill out your ballot you may choose to use the straight ticket option which means that you would just like to vote for candidates of a certain political party or a split ticket option which means that you choose candidates from multiple parties
  3. some voters face an issue and their reaction to this issue is ballot fatigue. ballot fatigue is when there are many names on a ballot and a person gets frustrated with reading them and decides to just pick the name closest to the top
