Research is all about deciding what sources to use in order to be accurate, credible, etc. and the process of making these choices is called “rhetorical action”. When I chose to do research on the electoral college, I decided to look for sources that were written in the 21st century, as I didn’t want to use any outdated sources. I also looked at the sources, whether they were from newspapers or scholarly texts. This helped me to get information from various types of information outlets which reduced bias. All in all, when I was going through the process of rhetorical action I decided of write out all the questions I wanted to answer through my research. My choices were made based on the sources abilities to answer these questions when they were put together.
