election day 2012. i was worried as i approached my voting site. yesterday i learned my name hadn’t been updated in the voter registration database so i knew my state id wasn’t going to match when i requested my ballot. i was relieved when, after explaining the problem, i received my ballot and went in to fill in all those little oval with black ink.
everyone should exercise their right to vote. people fought hard so we could have this right. it’s how we make our voice heard. if you don’t speak up now, you have no right to complain later.
now, i sit nervously and watch as the votes come in.
update. obama wins!!!!!!
