Campaigns and Elections: Democracy in Action video

Video title: Campaigns and Elections and Democracy in Action

Use this American Government by the People video entitled Campaigns and Elections: Democracy in Action to understand how government works and to study how American elections, even presidential elections, are largely governed by state law and administered by local election officials and how following the 2000 elections, governments at all levels have begun to look for ways to improve the system. Discover how our electoral system is based on winner-takes-all rules, typically with single-member district or single-officeholder arrangements. These rules encourage a moderate two-party system. That we have fixed and staggered terms of office adds predictability to our electoral system.
