Home Spun reprints #287- Vote!
It seems to me that many people opt not to vote during off-years. That is, years when there are only local elections. I've tried to instill in my children that these local elections can be the most important, since they are most likely to have a direct effect on our lives.
There is no presidential election next Tuesday. Our U.S. senators and representatives are not running for re-election. There are only local candidates this year, and some are even running unchallenged because of the lack of interest in these positions. But for me, this is a significant election year. This year, Marina will be voting for the first time.
Would it be silly if I brought a camera to the polls?
