Should You Vote?

Should you vote? Most would say you should if you can...but do you really know how our government is structured? Do you know some of the basics that every citizen should know?

This quiz will help you determine your knowledge of government. No fair looking up the answers. Just answer each question to the best of your ability and knowledge. If you score really low, maybe you should just stay home on election day. Good luck.
