Extra Credit Assignment

Credit Possible

EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENT A

YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH PARTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT

Part 1

Write down the voter identification requirements for your county.

Part 2

Fill out a State of FL Voter Registration Form.

    • (If you don't want to use your real information, you can use false information for everything except your name.  If you choose a third party it needs to be an actual third party -- not the pizza party.  The party you select does not need to be the party you would actually select. This project is so that you understand the voter registration process.)

5pts on an assignment of your choice.
