One more voter!

My fourth oldest was able to vote for the first time yesterday, and unlike almost 70% of the registered voters of my area, voted. While she was a bit embarrassed by the applause she received from the senior citizen volunteers at the polling station yesterday, I understood exactly why they are applauding. They spend hours volunteering at the polls and in our particular district only 16.6% of the voters came out to vote so seeing a young person care enough about their right to vote to actually do it, was worthy of applause.

Tell her congrats from me too!

Another informed voter is always welcome. And, with you for a mother, I feel pretty confident that she was, indeed well informed ;-)
