Will You Be Voting?

By

Voting is a right as an American citizen. It is your chance to make your voice heard.

As I reflect on our right to vote I think about those who defend our country. They are defending our right to vote, along with everything else this country has to offer. I have no doubt that they exercise their right to vote, and sometimes under the worst of circumstances.

Today I also think about those who were not born an American citizen, but had to earn that distinction. Those people hold their citizenship as a precious privilege that they worked very hard to obtain. I have no doubt that those people will exercise their right to vote.

To this day it is still a choice to vote. Our country is all about choices and the right to make them.

This post is not about politics. It is about exercising your right as an American citizen.

Vote and make your voice heard.

      Absolutely!

  2. I would if I could.

    But they don't allow people who are not US citizens to vote:-)

    I just came back from voting Cheryl. We have a hot senate race here in MA along with the Presidential race. This will be interesting. I completely agree with you about voting.

    I voted first thing this morning. Then I worked the polls as a volunteer for 3 hours. It was a most interesting morning. People who were unable to walk, maybe were on a ventilator, had other physical needs, were being driven in my friends and family in numbers I've never seen before.

      I think that's wonderful that you both voted and volunteered. So glad that people are making the effort to vote.

    I was talking to a friend about this yesterday. In Australia voting is compulsory and if it wasn't I have a feeling many would not bother especially as we do not like or are used to waiting in long lines. Our elections are very different to yours and one example is the usual campaigns are about 6 weeks long and even then we get sick of the political ads.

    I think it is great that so many Americans vote and you are right it is about having the choice and exercising your right.

    I have heard that Australia voting is compulsory. Maybe not such a bad thing to consider. 6 week campaigns… would love that!

    I am really pleased that so many Americans are choosing to vote.

    Well, it's ironic that I comment AFTER the projection of the winner. Yes – I voted. And you're right, it's a statement of choice and I certainly don't mind being a drop in the bucket.

    • Geek Girl says:

      In this election every 'drop in the bucket' was important. Glad you voted.

    You know, I don't think that I caught the bug for voting until I visited Washington DC this past year and felt the vibe that is present there. Beyond voting there are so many other things one can do. The hard part for me is just that they take time…

      Hey – did you notice that I put a photo on my homepage just for you? πŸ™‚

    I voted early as soon as I could. Only had to wait in line an hour, which in reality, isn't bad in comparison to how long some had to wait. Then last night, I watched the states being called in Eastern time, which was hard to do, but it was also entertaining to simultaneously watch everyone on Facebook put their two cents in.

  11. Geek Girl says:

    I had to wait too. Not as long as some though.
