  • Off to go vote for a representative?
  • Three of Colorado's representatives.
  • In a Federal Government I used a Location mark to show where power is located in a Federal government. The power is divided between the local and central governments.
  • In a Presidential Government the power is split Between the Legislative and Executive branches. They are separate but equal. The constitution provides separation of powers for the branch. There is an equal sign in the middle of the two pictures to show that they are equal.
  • In a Representative Democracy the power is first located in the citizens then the power goes to the representatives the citizens vote for.
  • In a Unitary Government the power is located in one place (a single central agency).
  • In a Parliamentary Government the Legislative and Executive branches are fused together so the power is in one spot. The line is to show that there are two separate branches but they are fused together.
  • In an Aristocracy Government someone is born to rule by being in the family line so all the power is located in one person.
