We had our “Primary Nominating Election” (l33t speak for “Voting Day”) for our Mayor and a bunch of other important city and county officers today. I’m proud to say that since I turned 18, I never missed casting my vote on voting days, either state, county or city. Even after I got off the plane from my second pet rescue trip last November, feeling like shit and exhausted, I still went straight to the voting booths after a quick stop at home to get my voting guide. The guilt would plague me to this day if I hadn’t gone!
Sure, I wonder if it’s all in vain because of all the fraud running rampant in our voting systems, but I’d rather take the 10 minutes to do just in case it does really count. Hey, I like to be blindly optimistic sometimes.
