Yes I Did!
As we drove to our early voting location, I asked Anasia (1st grade) who was running. After thinking a minute, she excitedly shouted, "Marack Obama!" I asked who else. She quickly said, "John McCain!"
Off we went to be a part of history-in-the-making.
I took my camera to document our history making trip. We sought out both candidates campaign signs, but McCain wasn't represented.
I was a little disappointed in the poll workers raised eyebrows and comments toward Vanessa and Anasia. I really expected them to be so much more welcoming toward introducing future voters to the process--especially with this being such a historic election. Despite their looks, I kept Vanessa and Anasia with me and showed them how the electronic voting machine worked.
As we left, some people standing outside gave us a handmade "Yes I Did!" sticker to show everyone we voted.
As we got in the car to drive off, Anasia exclaimed, "Voting is fun!" ...to which I whole heartedly agreed.
