First off, one thing I learned from this debate was about how the voting system works. For example, when I was younger I though everyone would vote and whoever had the most votes won. But, in this case, their is something called electoral votes which are a body of people representing the states of the US, who formally cast votes for the election of the president and vice president. So, that means each state has a certain amount of electoral votes depended on their population. In Hawaii, we have 4 electoral votes.
Next, as I grow older I learned that voting is a very important part as being a citizen of the US. Many people say,"No vote, no grumble!" Voting is a way that you have some kind of voice in this government. Also, what's cool is that as kids in middle school, they teach us voting is good. We even get the chance to kinda have our own vote on a kids voting website, but I know that kids vote's don't count.
Finally, the candidates. This election had two big important people running. The democrat Hillary Clinton and the republican Donal Trump. Honestly, both of them sounded like interesting presidents. Also, I learned that it's important to research both candidates to have a clear understanding of who you want to vote for. This election, surprisingly, Donald Trump has defeated Hillary Clinton. But, if you didn't know, what is interesting is that Hillary actually got more votes that Donald Trump, but like I said, only the electoral votes matter. Interesting right?
To sum this up, here is some things I learned from this presidential election this year. Also, in 4 years we have another election to come. Yes, Donald Trump won and I do hope he becomes a great leader in this country. But anyways, thanks for reading and I'll see you next week!
