This may be trite, but today I am thankful for the right to vote. I am grateful for those who fought for a woman’s right to vote. I am thankful for those who died to keep our country free, and allow me the opportunity to continue to vote each year.
I voted today in my local election. I try to educate myself as much as possible on the issues, and then I cast my votes accordingly. I have voted in almost every election – even voting absentee when living out of state with the Army.
It is a right and a privilege to be able to influence local issues and to show my support for candidates that I can trust to make the correct decision for my community. It is the only way politicians know what the electorate really wants.
Did you vote today?
