I voted early today....Did you ???  

Voting is a privilege that is offered to nearly all of us who live in the United States...

It is some thing that we should cherish..the fact that we have to opportunity to Vote. 

I have always felt that it is a Right to Vote....and that in order to have an opinion about political topics you must actually cast your vote.

If you do not vote then you do not have the right to complain....or to have the opportunity for me to listen to your opinion.  

Who you vote for in an election is a personal choice.    I promise not to condemn you if you do not agree with how I vote...

If you don't hassle me for how I vote.  

Trust me....I vote differently than how my family votes.....but that is ok...I respect their decisions....and most of the time it is pretty amicable....because deep down we really do have the same values...and we fight for most of the same issues.  

Our office has been flooded with a lot of good natured teasing of one particular agent who likes to stir up the pot....do you have one of those in your office?  

I will say that, like many, I am glad that this Political Season is nearly over.   The campaign commercials and mailers  have been overwhelming....and I wonder if the money they spent on commercials would have been better spent on helping schools or other needy organizations?  

I am proud to be an American and it has greatly warmed my heart reading Facebook today and seeing the announcements of how many of you have voted.  

Many voted early across our state and they are predicting that the turnout will be record setting.   Many have waited in long lines to vote...Isn't that exciting? 

I also can't predict who will be the winner....but I know that when it is all said and done it will be the Good Lord's will...that I do now for sure!

I Voted Today.....Did You??

Deborah, I took advantage of early voting thinking the lines would be horrendous today. Turns out, it took me longer to vote than if I had voted today!

Deborah, it definitely is our right to vote, and silly if you don't do your part!    Politics has been the subject for the last few weeks, and tonight (or tomorrow) we will hear who our next leader will be!   I delivered my ballot last week, never want to stand in lines!

It gets forgotten that many places on the planet, the citizens do not get to vote Deborah. We take these things for granted sometimes. That's for your vote, however you voted.  :)

Deborah, It’s a shame that so much money was spent on the campaigns. Of course the money would be better spent on schools and other budgets that have been so deeply cut.
