  • Most Americans didn't vote in 2016. What can convince them if not the general dissolution of the entire world politic? How about a cleanly designed app that pays you money? Hopefully it's that, because that's what we made for you. Download the game here: https://sambee.app.link/IiRmXbZQ9P

    I tried out your game today. I think it might be broke. I went into dead mode after a correct answer. Also no one won today. Surely someone won if there i not a break in the game.

    A complementary strategy for increasing voter turnout is non-partisan local social engagement. Whatever groups or clubs you might be a part of, consider creating a notice or event giving election information (eg, early-voting, updating voter registration, etc.) or creating a "group voting" event on Election Day, or even volunteering as a group to, say, help transport seniors to their polling places. No need to bring any politics into it at all, beyond a fundamental shared belief in our democratic experiment.
    Democracy is the worst form of government, aside from all the others. Historically, that's not a pleasant lesson to have to learn first-hand.

    So the ad says and I'm quoting here "Did you know more people download mobile games than people vote in the election" so I want to ask
    Do you guys not know 67% of children prefer mobile games over a console
    That may have something to do with it

    6 million more votes, the problem is the confederate electoral college.

    She represents most of us who have no voice. The GOP wants us poor, barefoot and pregnant. We are like a livestock to them. Something to be used when they want to. This is why Trump loves Putin because in Russia women are slaves. I just saw a movie Eastern promises on cable which is very close to real life.

    I live in California our votes here dont matter because we will always be a blue state even after we had a republican governor we still voted democrat. The thing people need to know about people is that people have their own autonomy. I did not vote for Hilary I didnt. I knew my state was going to go blue regardless but I didnt vote for her and people like having their own autonomy. The democrats rallied behind a person NO ONE LIKED. No one likes a loser. She lost to Obama and she needed to stay on her lane. Aint no one was gonna vote for her. I just think its important for people to be able to have autonomy but do good for the country.

    Voting is extremely important but at the same time highly illogical for any individual to make the effort. The odds of any one voter's vote being decisive is outrageously remote in a large scale election with more than a few hundred voters. Australia's Founding Fathers realised this so voting is compulsory and if you fail to show up you get fined. For some reason failing to vote in a state election here in New South Wales (fine of A$55 ~US$40) is more expensive than failing to vote in a federal election (A$20 ~US$15). Also all our elections must occur on a Saturday. We're still baffled US elections are held on a weekday.
    However, we don't elect our judges or police chiefs(I guess you'd call them sheriffs) so we have far fewer elections we have to pay attention to. The plus side is we don't get judges who base their decisions on whether they will look good on a TV ad but we do have the potential for shockingly bad judges sitting on the bench waiting to retire and no one is incentivised to boot them out. I'm not sure how big a problem this really is but it has been satirised so I'm guessing it's not unheard of.
