Did you vote today?
Events, News, Politics

I went and voted after work today. I walked in to the polling place and there were no other voters there, just the ladies working. When I was finished voting, the machine sucked in my ballot and said I was number 59. I said to the ladies "Not a very busy day today, I am number 59". They informed me that I was only the 8th or 9th person to vote today and the rest were absentee votes. I starred at them in disbelief.

The last couple of days have been filled with sorrow, celebration, reflection and being a proud American. As I left the polling place, I pondered what I had just heard. If you are a proud American, why aren't people voting today? It is one of the greatest responsbilies we have as adults. I couldn't wait to turn 18 so I could go to the fire barn in Coopersville and vote. I voted around 530pm and I am hoping that many more people took the opportunity to vote tonight.

If you don't vote, you don't have a say in the outcome!
