I don't know about you, but I love that we get to vote in this country.  I love that we have a way to have a voice.  Even if the candidates we voted for loses, we had the opportunity to have a say and make a difference in the way we're governed.  I take that right very seriously.  I try to vote every time I've gotten the opportunity.  I'm not perfect; so I've totally missed out on elections since I was 18.

Today was not one of those elections that passed me by unnoticed.  I exercised my right, even though it took me an hour and ten minutes to drive to my polling place from work in the pouring rain.  It would be easy to be apathetic and just go straight home after that much time creeping down the highway, right?!  But I knew I'd feel a twinge of guilt.  So many people have fought (and are still fighting today) to make sure I continue to have these rights, and I want to take as full advantage of that as possible. 

I hope you joined me in this endeavor!  If not, please consider voting in the next election.  If we take our rights for granted, we just might lose the privilege.  I don't ever want that to be the case.


  1. I'm proud of you! It was pouring down and long lines, but don't you feel so patriotic?! I know I did. Although, I really wanted an "I Voted" sticker but they didn't have any. Did you get one?

  2. Yep...I got the sticker above! I have it in my purse. I'll give it to you if you like.
