Hello I'm Ocean Smith I live in California and I'm 35 years old. I work as a make up artist and in my free time I paint. I do make up for celebrities, weddings and parties. I've worked for celebrities such as Kim Kardashion, little Nas X and Kylie Jenner.

How do you feel about tomorrows election?

I have mixed emotions about tomorrows election because I don't like either of the candidates that much but I feel it's important to choose the right person as they will be running our country.

Can you explain why some people may not vote?

Some people cannot get to a polling station in time as it may be far away or they may work too late. Also, many dislike both candidates or feel their vote isn't important because their state doesn't have many electoral votes.

How powerful do you think your vote is?

Well I'm not quite sure my vote is important - I'm only one person and the electoral vote can change the overall outcome as we saw in the 2016 election. However, my states electoral vote is very high because California has 55 electoral votes.

Why should people vote tomorrow?

People should vote tomorrow because The future President will be running our whole country, making guidelines and rules for us to follow. So it's important that you chose the person you think is best for our country.

How do you feel about the voting system in America?

I disapprove of the voting system in America because in the past, candidates have cheated their way into being President. Additionally, some states have far less electoral votes than others- so they have an unfair advantage.

Would you ever run for President? Why?

I'd never run for President because Politics is not really my passion and it's too much of a responsibility for me. Furthermore, I like a laid back life. I wouldn't like being in the spotlight all the time or being judged on my every move.
