On Monday November 3, the night before the coming election, your team will present a campaign television commercial on a specific California proposition to the registered voters of the Metro community. The purpose of your ad is to persuade your audience on how to vote in the California election on the following day.
Each team of four students will create the following products:
Your success depends on:
The Upper Division students of Metro are proud to present their political ads for the California propositions of November 2008. These videos are the product of months of researching the ballot, interviewing voters, studying the media, thinking critically about the issues, and spending hours in video production.
We are thrilled that ABC-7 News came to Metro to film a story about our project. See the ABC-7 News story.
Congratulations to the students of Metro for their wildly successful exhibition night.

The target voters for our campaign ad are young people between the ages of 18 and 30. These people are swing voters because they are young and newer voters and tend to be less informed. They also tend to get in trouble with the police more than other age groups. The rhetorical device we are going to use is logos because in our commercial we tell voters that if this prop passes more money is given to police, but they are not given any guidelines as to how to use the new funds. We believe our commercial is going to motivate our target voters to vote because it shows how the police are benefiting from this prop, yet nothing will change. Also, this commercial will have a little humor so these voters will pay close attention to the commercial and learn what prop 6 is really about.
