The interview:

Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

Hello I'm Eden Jones I'm 33 and I live in Michigan. I'm a chef but it's harder because I actually have a disability which is MS (Multiple Scelorosis) and I work in The Original Cottage Inn I do suggest going there also, I have one child who is 2 years old called Jake.

How do you feel about tommorrow's election?

Good question, I feel quite nervous but excited at the same time mainly all the people in Michigan hope Joe Biden wins but in my opinion it's just all over the place because they just keep fussing and I just want it to get finished and just out of the way. But overall, I'm more nervous than excited.

Why should people vote tommorrow?

Because every person's vote counts it doesn't matter even if you feel like your's isn't powerful and it will do nothing it always will. I do want to become president but unfortunately I'm a little bit too young the minimum age is 35 I'm close but not close enough. But I hope that a lot of people vote and not make stupid excuses like 'Oh it's raining I can't go now' infact I heard if you don't vote in australlia and you don't have a good excuse you can get fined!

How powerful do you think your vote is?

I think my vote is probably around the middle like it still helps but it doesn't do you get what I mean? Some states get a lot like California they get 55 electoral which is just insane! But I think voting is important and helps the whole of America no matter what even if it's a 30 miniute drive I would do it.

Can you explain why some people may not vote?

For some people it takes a long time and also since it's on a weekday it's harder some people for example some people might have to have nearly the whole day at work then a 1 hour drive just to get to the polling station that's not a excuse because that takes a really long time just to vote and then you also have to drive back to your house which would probably take another hour so that's just you can't vote because I don't really know anyone would will to actually do that.

What about the presidency. Would you ever run for president? Why?

No even though I could because it's just too much pressure for me even though I have a fair amount of money $750,000 I would support more chefs and plant more trees and I find the enviroment is very important even though I'm a chef anyway the chances of me actually winning are very low and you need a lot of support and humbleness to win and I just think it's to nervewracking and anyway if you lose who will people take the blame on. You.

How do you feel about the voting system in America?

I think it's unfair but I have to be honest I don't really know because it's just to confusing that's why I just well don't know!

Thank you for reading my post!
