. "In the political system of america, a representative democracy in which political office is won by a simple majority (excluding the presidential office and any appointed positions such as the supreme court and the executive cabinet), candidates that hope to win a race for office need to find a way to inform voters on there policy stances and convince them to turn out to vote, but also to cast there vote for them specifically. They often do this using a team of people working on their campaign which help them to reach the public via televised messages, calling the electoreates telephone to speak with them about voting, and going door informing the voter’s on the issues. For this reason, it is intuitive that a candidate’s spending on their campaign, such as for the sake of paying that team of people and access to these public platforms, may effect the numbers of individuals in their electorate that vote."
