1)Independents are people who have strong party affiliation.
2)About 75% of those eligible to vote did so in the 2000 presidential election.
3)If we are indeed a democracy, a government by the people for the people, then it is important for each citizen to vote so that the government can operate as intended ... by the people.
4)The "time-zone fallout" problem has to do with the fact that polls on the Eastern seaboard often close before much of the people in the rest of the country leave work in the evening.
5)"Ballot fatigue" is when voters loses patience and/or knowledge as they work their way down a ballot (better known national candidates are at the top and lesser known local candidates are at the bottom), so they decide to stop voting and leave lesser political races blank.
6)People with a low sense of political efficacy often do not vote.

Half of your answers are right -- about what we'd expect from pure guessing.

You can answer all of the above questions by googling the qestions' key words in the questions. And you'll learn a lot by doing so.
If you don't understand the vocabulary (terms) used in the questions, you might have trouble. So, you might have to look up the word "efficacy," for example, by googling "efficacy" and "merriam," which will take you to the relevant entry at the Merriam Webster Dictionary.
