My 18-year-old had the privilege of voting in her first election this past Tuesday. It was a very exciting time for her! I remember the first time I voted. My father was one of the County Commissioners at the time. He drug me out of the house in my hot rollers (oh yeah, you remember those with the metal clips and steaming hot, hard rollers?!). I remember thinking I'd be devastated if someone saw me looking like this, instead of realizing what a privilege it was to have the right to vote.
So yay, Megan! Never take it for granted and always remember to vote!
