I voted today! I hope you did too. I took my kids with me, so they were able to witness the voting process. I am teaching them young that voting is an exciting and responsible thing to do as an American. Brendan kept asking why they don't let kids vote. He also asked other questions that were difficult to answer, but I did my best. I began the day with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some last minute research on the propositions and amendments, and I also did further research on a couple of the candidates that I knew little about. After I felt confident enough that I knew what I was voting for or against, I gathered up my kids and made my way to my polling location.
