If you live in any of the states having primaries today, that's all I'm gonna say.

Please, exercise your right to make a difference. Even if you feel like voting in the primaries doesn't matter (or if you live in a federal district or territory where it really doesn't matter), do it anyway.

Thank you!

I voted today too! It's the one time when voting in DC actually DOES matter.

Utah had its day last week. I asked my mom in jest, "Well, who'dja vote for?"

"Mitt Romney, of course."

I didn't think she was going to TELL me (I reminded her of the whole secret ballot thing, and I also thought it was hilarious that it was such a no-brainer for her. I suppose she'll support McCain now.

And thank YOU. Like LG said, it was last week that we had the opportunity to vote. Being that I have slacked off as of late and have felt more or less lethargic about our government, I did not get registered in time to vote in the primaries.

*hanging head in shame*

Jess: Did you notice the atmosphere as you were out voting this morning or was it just me? I felt like there was an excited in the air I haven't felt ever. I'm glad I voted today!

LG: Yeah, my mom is writing in Mitt today. No surprise there. The big surprise, though, was she told me if McCain is the Republican nominee and Obama is the Democratic, she's voting for Obama! I just about died. I thought for sure she'd vote Republican all around.

Abgue: Nothing to be ashamed of my friend. There's still time to register for the general election, though, right?

Done and done!

There did seem to be an energy lacking previously.

I violated a longstanding belief of mine during the last presidential race and registered for a party for the first time in my life, specifically for the purpose of voting in a primary. If I can do it, anyone can!

j.m. tewkesbury said...

Wicked: Excellent! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the energy.

NG: I said something similar to a friend today: "It only takes 10 minutes of your time, so just do it." I haven't been this excited about voting since, well... ever!

Liz said...

I voted! Go Hillary!

Liz: Yeah! Do you think she'll manage to get back on top with the March 4 primaries? It's so fascinating to watch the race between her and Obama.
