Vote – or don’t discuss politics. Maybe it is my first-generation American mentality, but I don’t understand why people don’t exercise their civic rights and responsibilities. It takes only a moment, generally, and provides a genuine opportunity to be part of a process. I haven’t missed an election since I turned 18 and I sincerely hope the experience of accompanying me to the polls wears off on my boys. I find it kind of exciting that my oldest son will be able to vote in the next presidential race, even if he sometimes threatens me by describing himself as conservative. I certainly can’t be described using that C-word, but when it comes to fiscal choices, like the gambling proposal on today’s ballot, I am decidedly cautious. That’ll be a “no” vote from me. If you’re undecided or unaware of this year’s ballot proposals, please click here before heading to the polls. Maybe I’ll see you there.
