ALL LATE ASSIGNMENTS ARE DUE TOMORROW -- FRIDAY, JUNE 1st. 
DO YOU HAVE ANY MISSING ASSIGNMENTS? 
IF YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO REMAIN ZERO, TURN THEM IN BY FRIDAY.

Today we'll start with a QUIZ over last night's homework on minor parties' role in the political system. 

Yesterday, you had a chance to read an article that points out some of the positive things the two-party system has going for it. If you've completed the reading and questions that go with it, share a link to it in the class DropBox. If you haven't finished, take some time in class to read it and answer the questions. Share it  when you are done. 

Next, we turn our attention from the candidates we vote for, to the people who do the voting. Just who is able to vote today, and how has our ideas about voting changed over time?
Use the handout to learn about Voting Rights (Chapter 6.1) and Voter Registration (Chapter 6.2). Leave the final two columns on the right blank; we'll complete them together tomorrow. 

COURSE FINAL INFORMATION:
Your final for American Government is Tuesday, June 6, during regularly scheduled class. Here's some information about it:
It's a comprehensive exam, covering (potentially) everything we've discussed, read about, or talked about in class since the start of the semester. You may use a 3 x 5 notecard (both sides) with notes that YOU create. You'll take it on the Chromebook; it's anywhere from 15 to 45 questions long (the more correct answers you get, the shorter it is).
