VOTE!

I voted....

See! I even got the sticker to prove it!

Now....

I want YOU to go out and Vote! :)
Whether you are Republican, Democrat, or Independent I encourage you to get out and vote! Just as we have rights we also have responsibilities as a country to go out there and be the voice of the people.. of our cause... and our generation! I am a proud citizen of the United States and I consider it an honor and a privilege to have had the opportunity to participate in this election! Not only did I vote for myself, but I voted for those who are not old enough to vote. For the decisions our elected officials make today WILL effect the generations of tomorrow!

So get out there perform your civic duty! :)

and..

HAPPY ELECTION DAY! :)

What a great post, I too agree that as citizens of this country, it's our responsibility to vote. With that said, I don't agree with UNINFORMED voting. Honestly, that isn't helping anyone. To really honor those who died for our right to vote, we need to be educated about our voting decisions.
Ah. Sorry.. I totally went off on a tangent. ha ha!

I'd vote if i was American lol. But yes voting is a privilege that should be taken seriously and USED! I hate ppl that just don't bother to vote, they give you so many options for scheduling in your voting times.

I voted! woohooo! I voted absentee b/c getting married and moving changes a lot of things but I got to vote and that's all that matters!

Thank you for this. I once ran for office, and I can tell you that the most disheartening thing in the world, for any political candidate, is to hear of people who don't exercise their right to vote. It's one of the most fundamental of all of our freedoms, and there are very few good excuses for not doing it. If only more people were as gung-ho as you!

I didn't vote. Not because I was busy or because I didn't know enough about the issues, but because my vote doesn't matter. And I don't mean that like people normally mean it - my vote really doesn't matter because DC doesn't have voting representation in the House or Senate. I understand why this was policy in 1790, because back then everyone who lived in DC was directly involved in major policy decisions. But 120 years later, things are different. Nowadays, it's just half a million disenfranchised Americans. Only a third of DC residents work for the federal government, and very few of us are actually important. I'm not. We pay our taxes like everyone else, but don't have the same rights as everyone else. It's time that changes.

Hopefully this will change one day, but it's clearly not going to happen under this administration :/
