How could anyone NOT want to vote in this election? Even if you think your vote doesn't count, do it anyway! We all have a stake in how the country is run for the next 4 years, I just don't get it. This has been the most personally taxing election season for me. I voted for Hillary in our Caucus, and although I was disappointed that she didn't make it, I was so proud that a woman made it so far. I did my homework and became confident in Obama's abilities. I was proud once again while watching the first African-American accept a major party's nomination. My party's nomination. I have researched everything I can find to be sure, and there is no doubt in my mind that Barack Obama NEEDS to be the next President of the United States. I hope that the majority sees it that way.
We have a Definition of Person amendment on our ballot this year. No question, voted NO.
I also voted for Jared Polis for Congress. If elected, he will become the 3rd openly gay member of Congress. That's exciting. And no, I didn't vote for him just because he's gay.
I wish I could vote on California's Prop 8. I would proudly vote NO. Again, I hope that the majority of people do the same.
I have talked about the candidates and issues of this election so much, I will be happy to talk about something else after the results are in. But I would gladly keep up the debate if it meant that EVERYONE who is able, would do their homework and vote. I will sit and watch the results trickle in, and believe that THIS time, the right person will be elected.
