November 6, 2012
First Time Voter Interview in Fresno, Cali.
Can I have your name and age?
Christopher Deleon and I’m 18 years old.
How would you describe this experience?
It was ok, I think I was prepared for it. I think it goes by fairly quickly.
Did you vote for any of the propositions or only for president?
I voted for the propositions and the president.
Did you have any information about any of the propositions and candidates before you voted?
I did research on the ones that were unclear to me.
Those are the ones I looked up on the internet and tried to see what they were.
How influential was the media?
Somewhat influential, mostly on the candidates. If I hadn’t heard of them it would’ve been hard to choose.
For the next election, how can you prepare yourself?
Actually pay attention to who’s running for what. I only knew who was running for president.
Why did you come out to vote?
I think it’s important to have a say in politics Just because you’re a citizen doesn’t mean you’re not a politician. Everyone is their city should be a politician because everyone should be involved in their government. They can’t complain about anything, if they didn’t vote.
