Examination of a Federal Election- This report will examine an election of a chief executive (President) at the federal level. If a federal election is chosen, you MUST use the Federal Elections Commission’s website at www.fec.gov as a source if possible (or email me why you cannot). If you are unsure about your topic, please have it approved/reviewed beforehand. Finally, be sure to touch on the following points: • Historical Significance- What are the most significant facts about the election. What major event(s) did it cause or have an effect on? Was there a power shift? • Candidates- Who were the major candidates? What did they do before? What did they do after (especially the loser)? • Interesting Facts about Process- What led to the respective candidates running for office (primaries, runoffs, etc.)? What were the finances involved? What roles did the parties play? What about the media and interest groups? How was public opinion a factor? What were the campaign strategies? Where did the candidates spend most of their time? What were the respective platforms of the candidates? What were some important campaign strategies used? • Outcome- Who won? What were the final vote counts (include Electoral College results for federal elections)? Any interesting trends among gender, regions, races, etc.? • Political Impacts/Conclusion- What were the effects of the election? How did it compare to what took place in 2016 or a previous election year? What was the historical impact of the election? Did the exit polls hold up? Cite some examples of some class topics and how they pertain to this election. Be sure to then conclude your thoughts in a logical and concise manner. he proper citation method is to put in quotations a direct quote sentence and follow the end of the sentence (before the period) with the author’s name and page number. For example, quoting Anderson’s article on page 20 would look like this: (Anderson 20). You should use this method at the end of a sentence/paragraph that is also a paraphrase; that is to say, a section that may be in your own words but takes an idea directly from another source. The source should, of course, also be in your bibliography. 3.) Bibliography/Works Cited Page Logistics The first line should have as a centered heading: Bibliography/Works Cited. Your entries (in proper MLA or APA format) should be listed alphabetically by the author’s last name.
