Hey, hey, it’s voting day!
I almost always vote. I know my one vote doesn’t make a big difference but for some reason I feel important on voting day. I feel part of something big. It reminds me of ants and what they are able to accomplish together with each one doing his itty-bitty part. I also think about my grandmother who remembered when women were given the right to vote. Can you imagine?! Before 1920 women where not allowed to vote.
I get excited and I actually get nervous once I am in the booth. What if I make a mistake?! I remember my first time voting in a presidential election in 1988. I voted absentee. I voted for Michael Dukakis. Do you remember that election?!
It’s like a holiday here. No school. Administrators plan a Cape wide teacher’s professional day on voting day which keeps kids safe and out of the schools that today serve as polling locations.
So Happy Voting Day my fellow ants!
