**for this component, try to avoid using sources that do not speak directly to your chosen state or that do not take a specific stance on the legislative changes

Written Assignment #1 – State Voting Rights
Since the passage of the 15th Amendment, various states have used their powers under Article I of the Constitution to impair the ability of minority groups to vote. The potential for states to use electoral laws for voter suppression remains controversial within contemporary American politics, as numerous states have recently enacted questionably restrictive TPM regulations. Some examples may include voter ID requirements, restrictions on mail-in ballots, reductions in early voting, etc.
The purpose of this written assignment is to demonstrate your ability to conduct research on state voting laws and to demonstrate your ability to assess the overall impact of state voting regulations.
To complete this paper assignment, you must do the following:
1. Select one state whose legislature has enacted changes to their voting regulations since 2018. Identify and explain the changes to the voting laws in your state (i.e. compare the ‘old’ and ‘new’ ways of voting in your chosen state).
2. Discuss support for and opposition to the legislative changes in the state you selected, as well as any subsequent legal threats or challenges. Some examples might include
a. Statements from elected officials or candidates for offices (e.g. Governors)
b. Statements from non-profit / watchdog organizations
c. Newspaper editorials
**For this component, try to avoid using sources that do not speak directly to your chosen state or that do not take a specific stance on the legislative changes
3. Give your evaluation of these legislative changes. Consider the following questions:
a. Do the changes in your chosen state seem likely to lead to voter suppression?
b. Do the changes in your chosen state seem to have a rational basis?
c. Does your case suggest a need for greater federal oversight (or regulation) of state voting laws?
Submission Guidelines
• Your paper should be approx. 1800 words in length
• Your paper will be electronically submitted via the appropriate D2L dropbox. Submit your paper in .doc,
.rtf, or .pdf file formats.

How do you think executive orders affect the system of checks and balances?

1) Do you think that Executive Orders are a good power for an American President to have? Why why not? Describe and discuss your reaction to the practice of Executive Orders. Were you aware of the power and reach of Executive Orders?
2) The U.S. Constitution does not address executive orders or define them as part of presidential authority, but the authority has been established “as a matter of law and practice.” Since George Washington, Presidents have issued over 13,000 executive orders. How do you think executive orders affect the system of checks and balances?
3) What do you think are the advantages of presidents being able to sign sweeping executive orders? What do you think are the risks or drawbacks? How would you amend the process, if at all?
