      CAMERA FACING COUCH, CENTER STAGE

      Written in the left corner of the screen: Somewhere at a CSU campus…

                                      ROSETTA
                                       (Curious)
                          What do you guys think about voting?

                                          KENNY
                                         (Perplexed)
         Its soooo complicated!!! I never know when I can vote, where I can vote.
                           It’s not like my vote counts anyway!

                                        MIKE
                                      (Confused)
   Gosh! I am not even registered to vote! I don’t even know if I would register as a
                    republican or a democrat…if I register at all.

                                      ROSETTA
                                    (Shaking head)
     Yeah, I don’t know much about political parties at all, except they are always
               disagreeing! I don’t think I am going to vote this year…

                                        NICOLE
                           (Running in STAGE LEFT, frantic)
         Wait wait wait!!! Voting IS important! It’s your right as an American!!

                                 GROUP ON COUCH
                                        Uuuugh!!
                             (Rosetta throws apple @ Nikki)

                    Ah guys, it’s not that difficult. Let me show you!
                                (Throws apple stage right)


“What is the history of voting?” – [Question flashes across screen]

Team 5
       Carina and Richard sitting on a bench- indoors. No props necessary.
       Carina and Richard dressed casually.
       Camera angle is directly facing Carina and Richard, viewing both actors.
       An Apple is thrown in from stage left, and Richard catches it.
       Conversation starts about voting history.

                                         Carina
                                 (Friendly and casual)
       Hey Richard, are you voting in the election tomorrow?

                                         Richard
                                    (Aloof, nonchalant)
        I don’t know. Voting’s no big deal.
                                          Carina
                                     (With excitement)
        Actually during colonial times the right to vote was limited to adult white males
who owned property. Most women could not vote though some colonies gave the right
vote to widows who owned property.
                              (Camera focuses on Richard)
                                         Richard
                                       (Confidently)
Oh, that’s right. Women weren’t allowed to vote in most states until the ratification of the
19th amendment in 1920. I wonder how old you have to be to vote?

                    (Fade out of scene with Richard rubbing his chin)

                                         Scene 2

                                    (With enthusiasm)
I can’t wait to vote next year when I turn 18!

                                          Shannon
                                         (Proudly)
Did you know that the 26th amendment lowered the voting age to 18 for all state and
national elections? Before then, only 10 states had allowed citizens under the age of 21 to
vote.



                                          Brian
                                    (Acting intelligent)
I know Shannon. But did you know that the Voting Rights Act of 1965 eliminated
discrimination in voting, all literacy test and prohibited the use of poll taxes?
(Proudly declaring) GIVING ME THE RIGHT TO VOTE!

                                           Shannon
               (Snobby- with nose in air turning quickly away from Brian)
Well, IIII’m off to the voting polls. (Starts to walk off stage left, and looks back and
tosses Apple stage right).

                         (Camera fades with Brian standing alone)

                                  (Cheerleader style)
I’m soooo excited about voting today.

                                        Shannon
                          (With a Tear-touched and emotional)
Me too, I’m so glad that President Lyndon B. Johnson sent federal examiners to register
Black voters.
                                  (Actors stop walking)
                                        Richard
                                       (Careless)
Yeah whatever, White males have been able to vote since 1830.

       to the state.

              Stranger 2
       The cards can be found at all government agencies such as the post office and the
       department of motor vehicles. (Pretends to drive)

               Stranger 1
       For sure. You can also call your county office
                       (Makes a phone sign with hand)
                       (Stranger 2 copies stranger 1)

“How does my vote count; what is the role of the Electoral College?” – [Question
flashes across screen]

Team 3

Scene One:

Camera is looking west down hall of second floor of Glenn Hall (around door of room
225). Janessa and Breean are walking toward the camera while Melissa and Ryan are
getting something out of a locker.
Apple is tossed from stage left, Melissa catches.

                                          Bree:
              I’m not gonna bother to vote; my vote doesn’t count anyways.

                                         Janessa:
                          Yeah, I’m not going to waste my time.

Camera focuses on Melissa and Ryan shutting locker door.

                                        Melissa:
  I can’t believe that some people don’t think that their vote counts! Don’t they know
                              about the Electoral College?

                                       Ryan:
        Yeah, the Electoral College…College….College (echo sound, dreamlike)

Wave the video to make it look like a dream.


Scene Two:

Camera is facing actors. Actors are in Glenn 112 sitting in the last row, with sign in front
stating “Electoral College Voters”. Ryan rushes up to actors in an excited frenzy.


                                           Ryan:
                       Hey guys!!! I just finished a paper on you!!!

                                         Janessa:
                              (Sigh) Him again? (Rolls eyes)

                                           Ryan:
                              (Ranting all excited, rapidly)
    The Electoral College is a system that allows voters to vote for electors, who in turn
                                cast their votes for candidates.
   Each State is allocated a number of Electors equal to the number of its U.S. Senators
    (always 2) plus the number of its U.S. Representatives (which is determined by the
                               size of each State's population).
                   Currently, the Electoral College includes 538 electors.
   Camera begins to fade out to black
    On the Tuesday following the first Monday of November in years divisible by four,
    the people in each State cast their ballots for the party slate of Electors representing
                                  their choice for president.
Scene Three:
Screen waves back and forth while Melissa says Ryan, Ryan

Camera comes into focus at locker with Melissa and Ryan, while Melissa is snapping by
Ryan’s head.

                                          Melissa:
Ryan, snap out of it!! You are doing it again. You’re making the Electoral College sound
                                     so complicated.

                                         Ryan:
                            Fine!! Then you explain it better.

                                          Melissa:
Each state appoints as many electors as it has Senators and Representatives in Congress.
A president can be elected through the Electoral College even while losing the national
  popular vote. The winner of the popular vote in each state gets that state’s electoral
votes. A candidate must win 270 of the 538 votes. The Electoral College was designed
  to allow all states, small and large to have an equal say in the presidential elections.

                                        Ryan:
People should know that their vote only works if they register. Have you registered yet?

                                         Melissa:
(With attitude) Don’t even go there. (Grabs apple away from Ryan and throws stage
right)

Team 7



   1. Interior hallway (Glen Hall)
   On the screen in the left corner have the name “Steven Noah” up while he introduces
   himself. On the right corner have the CSU News symbol.

   Camera is facing down the hall, with actor approaching camera, stage foreword.
   Halfway from approach apple is thrown from stage left. Actor continues towards
   camera.

   Fade the “Steven Noah”, and turn the CSU News symbol into a faded symbol.
                                    Spencer:
        (Fast pace – in hallway approaching camera holding microphone.)
           We’re on CSUC campus to ask random college students common
           knowledge about their political affiliation.

2. West side of Glenn Hall
Camera is following Spencer as he tries to interview students passing by.
                                    Spencer:
                             (Approaches student)
           Excuse me, are you registered to vote? Are you a member of a
                                             political party?

                                     Tyler:
                              (Quickly passes by)
           Sorry no time got to run.

                                     Spencer:
           Just one minute, sir. That’s all I’m asking

                                       Tyler
                                   (Shaking head)
           No

                                Spencer:
           Excuse me, are you registered to vote? Are you a member of a political
           party?

                                   Diana:
           Leave Me alone!

3. North side of Glenn Hall-near Continuing education building.
Camera focuses on student walking while Spencer approaches from stage left.

                                    Spencer
            Excuse me, are you registered to vote? Are you a member of a political
           party?

                                Rachel:
                              Into micro.
           What? Member of whom? what? I am a member of Gamma Phi kappa.

                                       Spencer
           I’m referring to the political election.

                                       Rachel:
               Oh okay, ya I know what your talking about, I don’t know do you have to
                               be a member of a political party?

                                         Spencer:
                As you can see there is much to learn about the voting process for these
       college students. No you do not have to be a member of a political party and you
        can vote for any candidate you want regardless of political party or affiliation.
       Many citizens just like these students are not aware that the views of the candidate
                         are what is important, not their political party!

Bring up the “Steven Noah” name on the left corner of the screen, and darked the CSU
News symbol on the right side of the screen.
                                        Spencer:
                      This is Steven Noah, and I am signing out.


“What are the major political parties? What are the general differences in views
between the major political parties? – [Question flashes across screen]

Team 9

1 EXT. CLASSROOM LOCATION
      (X) 1

CAMERA FACING FRONT OF ROOM, FOLLOW ACTORS OUT THE DOOR

As a man and woman turn in a questionnaire to the lady, she gathers a stack of papers.
Man and women cross upstage from stage right of lead actors and walk off camera stage
left. Man walks in from stage right with a red apple in hand and approaches the lady.

                                          MAN
                                 (inquisitive with grin)
             What is the difference between a Republican and a Democrat?

      Man hands apple to Lady as and lady holds apply thru the remaining scenes

                                           LADY
                                 (smile, willing to inform)
The main difference is that the Republican Party is usually more conservative with social
 issues, trying to hold on to traditions and resist major change. On the other hand, the
  Democratic Party is often more liberal, pushing for change by advocating for more
                            individual rights and civil liberties.

                          (inquisitive with a little annoyance)
                   What if I don’t like either of the two major parties?

                                            LADY
                                       (smile, relaxed)
There are other parties and although their candidates are rarely elected, they are essential
 to our voting process because of their support of issues. Third parties have historically
promoted policies, such as a woman’s right to vote, that have been included in our social
         and political lives after such policies were adopted by the major parties.

    I want to know more …..Where can I learn about a party’s views on certain issues?

                                           LADY
                                           (smile)

                                           Johnny
          I want to vote, but I don’t have enough information on the candidates.
                                         Ryan
 Did you know you can easily find information about candidate’s and their positions on
                                     the internet?

                                       Johnny
                   Really, can you show me what website to look at?

              I’m watching this special on candidates and their positions.

                                         Tricia
           Is television a good source for finding information on candidates?



                                          Ryan
   Yes, but you have to be careful because certain stations represent certain political
ideologies more than others, for instant CNN is a more liberal station, while Fox News is
                             more of a conservative station.

                                        Tricia
      Wow, I always thought that the news stations represented unbiased opinions.

 Yeah, this packet will give us some good information on the stances of each candidate
                 and it will tell us which measure will be on the ballot.

   table having a conversation. Heidi enters through the doorway. Camera follows
   Heidi approaching the table.

                                         Heidi:
                     (Walks up to the table with the other 3 actors)
               How are you guys doing? Are you ready to vote in next months election?

                                            Jason:
                                           Yea, I am.

                                            Meng:
                                            Me too.

                                         Heidi:
                 That’s not a problem you can fill out an absentee ballot.

                                           Kevin:
                                          What’s that?
                                          Heidi:
 When someone wants to vote and they’re out of town they fill out an absentee ballot.
This assures that you will have the opportunity to vote even though you won’t be able to
                                  go to the poll center.

                 office between 29 and 7 days before the election.
                                          Kevin:
                                  And then what happens?

                                          Heidi:
Once your application is processed they will send you a ballot. Fill it out and make sure
                           they receive it before election day.

                                          Meng:
                 Don’t forget the poll closes at 8:00 pm on election day.

                                       Kevin:
                  Ok. I guess now I don’t have an excuse not to vote.


Kevin throws apple stage right.
