Last night Nick and I voted. We took Ellie along and asked if she could vote, but the woman said that she wasn't old enough. It's okay though... she'll grow up soon enough and will be able to:)
I'm thankful that we live in a society where we have a right to make choices and vote. Not only is it our civil duty, but I think it's important. Although I haven't focused on the details of politics lately I have a little understanding of the general concepts. Some may say that I need to do more research, but I voted based on my current knowledge and on advice I get from trusted people around me.
