Tell your kids, ‘I voted’
Elections were always important in my house when I was growing up. My parents believe deeply in the right to vote, just as their parents did before. So I’m going to wear my I voted sticker prominently today to make sure that my kids know how important a single vote can be. If you think your vote doesn’t count, think about this. I heard a statistic today that in 2008, 26 races were decided by 5% of the vote or less. In 2006, one race was decided by just 83 votes.
So whether you are voting Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Green Party, the important thing is to remember to vote and teach your children to follow suit.
Happy Election Day!
