Analyzing Voting Behavior

The voting methodology of voting in the U.S. is ‘First-Past-the-Post’. That is voting and winning on the basis of maximum votes at the account. It is the best way to select a democratic government depending on the majority win. Whether all citizens vote or not, but those who do, whom they give the most votes wins.

In 1972 the voting age was changed from twenty-one to eighteen. The voters are not restricted to age, gender, color, class or race if they are eighteen or above they are free to vote. A revolution was made according to the voting Right Act 1965, the southern black people were granted the right to vote. The felony convictions are however not allowed to vote according to the laws, they consist of 5.3 million Americans. The laws still do not define clearly whether people with mental illness could vote or not.

The voter’s registration is individual responsibility in the U.S. instead of governments which tend to reduce voters. The way to make voters list and provide a voter ID at home is a far easier way to get voters to vote. But the otherwise options make it difficult to vote. The Registration Act 1993 is although trying to improve the system and have introduced motor-voter law that allows the voters to register online. Vehicles also roam around the town registering voters but this facility is only in some cities.

Voting requires some equipment that is used to conduct voting. Especially to make sure the counting of the votes is free of error machines like ‘optical scan voting machines’ and ‘DRE voting machines’ are used. Voting equipment also includes ballot boxes, stationery, papers etc making voting a costly process.

The&nbsp.voting behavior in the U.S. had ups and downs over the year, the recent Barrack Obama win election comparatively had a better result, but otherwise, the Americans seem to have very little interest in politics and voting.&nbsp.
