During an election, the political parties involved try to convince people to vote for them. This is called a campaign.
In November 2022, the US will hold its midterm elections and so politicians have been working on their campaigns.
Some voters have received texts and emails from the political parties trying to persuade them to vote. But the language of these has sometimes been described as “upsetting” and “intense”.
For example, some voters were sent the following messages:
“We’re downright BEGGING you to vote!”
Real social media message to a voter
"Do we need to talk, friend?"
Real text message to a voter
“HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE GOING TO HAVE TO ASK! VOTE NOW!!”
Real email to a voter
Over to you!
- What do you think?
- Is anything wrong with these messages? Why or why not?
- If you were trying to convince people to vote for you, what would you say?
