Today my daughter was able to vote in a Presidential Election for the first time. She was excited, she stayed up all night, and she wanted to vote first thing in the morning.
I set my alarm and got up early so we could go and vote together. We walked to the polling place. There were no lines. The day was beautiful.
We both had our sample ballots, and we both voted. Her enthusiasm was infectious.
We went out to breakfast together and talked about democracy and politics. It was a magical time.
She had been very active.
- Writing online about the candidates, issues and propositions.
- Providing information online on how to protect against voter issues.
- Providing information in forums on the neutral sites to research issues.
She is an ardent Senator Obama supporter.
Tonight we will watch the returns together and celebrate if Barack Obama is elected President.
