I voted today. We went to early voting and walked right in – no line – nothing. It was great! Last time I went to early vote we waited over an hour.
I think it is hugely important that everyone in our country participates in the democratic method and exercises their right to vote. We should all be concerned about the future of our country and who leads that future – at the national and local level. We are privileged to live in a country that allows us to elect our leaders in fair elections. We just cannot take this right for granted.
This primary season has been very exciting and interesting! It’s changing all the time! Even with all the differences in the candidates, one thing we can rest in is that all these leaders are committed to maintaining a democracy; if someone loses, they will not entice violence in the streets. We need to count our blessings!
