There are many things I won't go into on this blog, politics being at the top of the list. Although, I regret that Jessica and Kelli aren't here to see the candidates this year. The winds of change are blowing, you cannot argue that.
However, I will encourage you to vote in the Presidential election. Your vote does count, believe it or not. Sadly, I didn't believe it.
I recently had an interesting conversation with BFF Lynn about the electoral college. (I still say it should be abolished but I digress.)
One of the problems I see with the electoral college is that some people just don't understand the process. I remember last year when Jessica turned 18 and registered to vote, she was a little upset that the electoral college actually picked the President, and not her vote. Because I was misinformed about the electoral college, I wasn't able to tell her that her vote did count. However, after Lynn and I began debating the process, I found this handy and informative website that explained the process. Check it out if you are so inclined.
In a few days, you may notice some billboards on area highways encouraging you to vote. This is one of my favorites. The artist is Tom Huck, from St. Louis. Check out Art the Vote for other billboards.
As my dad says - vote early, vote often. But vote.
