Here’s to watching our voting voices be heard by new and old politicians.
This election day we had 34 choices to consider at my polling place (no propositions). It took me a while to get through each choice as I wanted to vote “for” a candidate and not for “a side” had a straight party ticket vote been punched (who came up with that lousy idea anyway?). I also wanted to vote for the friends I have and know running for office as they genuinely put their heart and soul into their election and service…and knowing that of them personally, I cared less of the party label behind their name on the ballot.
Know your elected officicals Call them. Write them. Talk personally with them. Then elect them if you know them well.
And just in case it need be known, I voted for 25 Republicans, 4 Democrats, and 5 Libertarians…or if you want to look at it another way, 21 men and 13 women. Label me as you see fit…I prefer the “Proud Voting American” personally.
Let’s make a difference by voting our conscious…and be better off for it.
