Obama Calls For US Election Reforms

VOANews: Obama Calls For US Election Reforms

While Americans are proud of their democracy, some are saying the election system is not working as it should. As VOA's Kent Klein reports from the White House, reports of long lines at the polls have led President Barack Obama to call for reforms in the way Americans vote.

USCIS 100:48. There are four amendments to the Constitution about who can vote. Describe one of them.

▪ Citizens eighteen (18) and older (can vote).
▪ You don’t have to pay (a poll tax) to vote.
▪ Any citizen can vote. (Women and men can vote.)
▪ A male citizen of any race (can vote).

USCIS 100:49. What is one responsibility that is only for United States citizens?*

▪ serve on a jury
▪ vote in a federal election

USCIS 100:50. Name one right only for United States citizens.

▪ vote in a federal election
▪ run for federal office
