I Take Great Pride In Voting

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41 People

    Always Have

    Since I was old enough to vote, I have only missed one time & that was just a little local election.  I like having my "voice" heard.  Don't tell me that 1 vote can't make a difference, we seen it in the Bush/Gore debacle in Florida.
