24 years old and my first time to vote. Pathetic, I know. In college I just never got around to finding a voting booth, even though I followed the election closely. So last night when my absentee ballot came in the mail, I decided it was time to exercise my constitutional right to vote. (I wanted to send it in rather than drag the kids to the voting booth with me.) Unfortunately, it didn't fill me with anything other than indifference.
"What's this about voting?" Leighton asks. "Am I a Republican or what?"
My top secret vote was strategically placed inside my "Secrecy Envelope." I felt very mysterious.
This is how Eva voted. She scribbled all over "her copy" of the blank ballot. Amen, sister.
