Ok, off my soapbox.
Now, is anyone actually really excited about the election? Just me? The first time I remember watching the election news coverage, I asked my parent, "Why are we picking a new President? Did ours die?" That was when I was around 6. Then at 10, we got to vote in mock elections at school. Again, I didn't really understand the importance. At 14, things started making more sense. I knew there were issues that were being argued, people taking sides. By 18, I had formed my own opinions, but was still unable to vote due to my birth date. From that point on, I've been all about seeing if my candidate won and hoping my voice was the loudest at the polls. Tonight I will be watching as usual.
Happy Election Day, everyone!
