Power Point

Unit III PowerPoint Presentation

Using the state in which you live (or another state of your choice), create a PowerPoint presentation explaining the state election and campaign process, party politics, and legislative organization and procedure. Using the CSU Online Library as a resource, you will also need to include information on gerrymandering and its impact (or lack thereof) in your state.

Create a detailed PowerPoint of 10–14 slides, not including the title and reference slides.

 Power Point must include the following information:

a title slide including your name and the state you selected

a political party structure

the types of primaries utilized in your chosen state

state party organizations

 state government structure

 campaign methods of a state candidate/incumbent

 the makeup of your state legislature (e.g., gender, age, profession)

apportioning and districting information

the legislative institutionalization of your state

 the party issues in your state; and three to four pictures, maps, or graphs.

Your slides or presentation should include explanations of the aforementioned points. Please do not copy and paste lists of senators and representatives into your slides. You may include additional information that you feel is relevant, but do not create more than 14 slides. Use your creativity, and organize the material in a logical and understandable manner.
