I have never voted in an election before. Before people start gathering their stones to throw at me, I should point out this election has only been my second chance. I did, in fact, go to vote yesterday. It felt a bit strange, but was not at all complicated. My voting place is so close to my house that I literally walked. I needed the exercise, so there really was no excuse.
More than that, I have always believed that anyone who doesn’t vote has no right to complain. I stand by that belief. I did not vote in the last election, and I have not. I honestly like President Obama. I do. I believe that that he has tried to bring about change.
I also believe that there needs to be more change in this country. I cannot say who the best man for the job is, but I can have my voice heard in the form of a vote. Until I had children, I didn’t really care about things like politics and voting. It just wasn’t something I liked to talk about—if you read my previous article, then you know I still don’t care to talk about it. But when you have children it is so important to stay informed and try to make a better future for our families. With that in mind, we vote.
