use elements of social location to explain voting patterns

To understand peoples’ behavior, sociologists look at their social location in society: their group memberships within categories like occupation, income, education, gender, age, race-ethnicity which influence their self-concept and behavior.
For this assignment, I’d like you to use elements of social location to explain voting patterns in the most recent Presidential election. If you voted, how did your social location influence your choice? If you didn’t vote, how would your social location have influenced you to vote? Now try to analyze elements of the social location of voters who cast their vote for a different candidate than the one you chose or would have chosen.
