It’s election day – did you do your duty and go out and vote? When you vote, do you vote straight party ticket or do you carefully select your candidates? Do you vote based on social issues? Taxes? Economy related items? What’s your trigger point? What makes you vote?
I don’t vote a straight party ticket – I vote based on who I feel will represent me the best when in office. However, I haven’t paid a lot of attention to that this year – I fell victim to the “my vote won’t matter much” scenario, which is a terrible thing. I know better. So I didn’t go to vote today. If I had gone to vote I would have done nothing more than picked names I liked or voted against people I know I don’t care too much for. That and I would have written in Jack Cluth for state governor.
I can not complain for at least the next two years. I didn’t go and vote today, so when we end up in a war that I can’t fully support thanks to the fact that my cousin and my ex-husband would be on the front lines, I can’t bitch and moan about it. I vote in the presidential elections, but these off years throw me. So I’ll try not to whimper too much when I’m unhappy with the Senate, Congress, and the Texas government, and I’ll be sure to vote in 2004.
So, what’s your story? Did you go and vote?
