I just spent my lunch hour registering to vote in Washington, DC. Yes, I recognize that DC doesn’t have full representation but it is my home. And after spending over a year back in the city, it seems silly to be registered in MD or even GA--though, I haven't decided if I will change my GA license...
I’ve heard that folks get called for jury duty almost immediately after registering to vote. Well see if that is the case for me. I hope not.
It feels nice to have exercised my right to vote—given all the folks who fought to give that right to women and people of color.
And I encourage everyone who is reading my blog to vote early or next Tuesday. This is an important election. And I'm sure you remember the lesson from the 2000 election: every vote really does count.
