This week's Occupy Think Tank radio show will turn towards the election process and wrestle with the question of voting. Local, statewide, national voting; how do these systems work? What is the value of a vote in America? Do you feel like it actually matters if you vote? How does the American system play into the value and/or perceived value of a vote? Do "they" even want every one to vote? What is done to encourage voting, if anything? What do the two main parties do to "activate" voters? We want to understand what it is about the American voting system that keeps voter turnout so low and leaves so many people feeling so disenfranchised.
