Interviewee: Josina Blocker (My Mother)

1. Q: What motivates you to come out and vote?

     A: What motivates me? The future of my child.

Q: What would you like to see changed in our political system?

     A: Umm. I would like to see the bickering amongst parties I would like to see that become more partisanship  rather than bipartisanship

Q: Do you know why we vote on Tuesday?

    A: Do you know why? Because I don’t.

Q: Do you know about the law that states prisoners not being able to vote? Do you agree or disagree with that and why?

    A: I feel as though they only put this law through because of our president. I disagree with that law because if they are still considered US citizens and did their time they should be able to let their voice be heard just like any other US citizen.

Q: Did you learn about voting in school? If yes, did that impact your willingness to vote today?

    A: No, I didn’t really learn about school that much it wasn’t a big topic back then and that was in the 80’s really. Voting to me is much different then what it used to be. Voting is more popular than it ever was before because of our black president.

     A: Yes I am.

Q: Do you vote in every election?

    A: Yes.
