Your current event must contain 3 components: a summary of your news article, a clear tie to your textbook, and a prediction of what you think is going to happen as an effect of your chosen event. Your summaries must be at least 100 words in length. They will be put through a word counter and a plagiarism checker, so do not just copy and paste parts of the article. You then must clearly analyze the event’s tie to your text in at least 100 words (again it will be put through a word counter and plagiarism checker). Anytime you include material from the textbook, you must cite in MLA. If this means that you are citing every time for 3 sentences in a row, this is ok. You must cite everytime!!! The last part of the assignment is to predict the effects of your chosen event. Your prediction should be at least 50 words, and is a subjective analysis in which you will use prior and newly acquired knowledge of different cause and effect relationships within the structure of Texas government policy to predict an outcome of their chosen event.For resources on MLA citation style please see the resource librarian at TWU or you may use the Owl at Purdue web source. The biggest mistake students make with this assignment is length and not citing properly in the second paragraph. Some credible news sources you may wish to consult include:www.WashingtonPost.comwww.USAToday.comwww.CNN.comwww.NPR.org www.DallasNews.comwww.TexasTribune.org While these are recommended sources, you may choose from others if you like. Again, You may not use opinion pages or blogs to draw from or you will not receive credit. Your news source must be credible. If you have questions about a news source before posting, please ask. and please make sure to tie the essay to this summary:Racial and ethnic factors are strong influences on Texas politics and shape political campaigns. The increasing size of the Latino population makes Latinos an important factor in elections. However, lower levels of political activity than in the population at large limit an even greater impact of the Latino electorate. A majority of Latino voters and super majorities of African American voters participate in Democratic primaries and vote for Democratic candidates in general elections.Texas women did not begin to vote and hold public office for three-quarters of a century after Texas joined the Union. Before 1990, only four women had won a statewide office in Texas. By the 1990s, the number of women elected to statewide office increased dramatically. Moreover, women served as mayors in about 150 of the state’s towns and cities. In several elections early in the 21st century, women led all candidates on either ticket in votes received. Female candidates held the top two positions on the Democratic Party’s ticket in 2014.The number of women elected recently to state office has declined. Despite their electoral victories in Texas and elsewhere across the nation, fewer women than men seek elective public office. As customs, habits, and attitudes have changed, opportunities for women in public service have expanded. The number of women elected recently to state office has declined.

General elections are conducted in November of even-numbered years to elect county, state, and federal officials from among candidates nominated in primary elections (or for small parties, in nominating conventions). Special elections are called by the governor to fill a vacancy (for example, U.S. congressional or state legislative office) or to vote on a proposed state constitutional amendment.
