Here is a current event topic that would be interesting to debate:

What constitutes illegal voter intimidation?

At what point does your freedom of speech end so voter intimidation does not begin? Or should you loose your freedom of speech simply because you are by a polling station?

What are your thoughts? Here is an article discussing this topic. (Apologies for any bias in this article; it really just covered the topic fairly well.)

I'm nervous about people looming outside of polling sites for zero reason. There is nothing to watch or look out for. Vote and go home happy with your "I voted" sticker.
