At this point in history it wasn't "cool" to be a registered voter. There was no "rock the vote" sponsored by MTV. The movie stars weren't out politicking for their favorite candidate... There was just the same old mud slinging adds running on T.V. and the voting booth. That being said, I still couldn't wait to cast my first ballot which would be in the presidential election between Gorge W and that guy who invented the Internet... what's his name... Oh-yeah Al Gore. What an election it was ending in a supreme court ruling and all.
Now many years later, as usual, the 2nd Tuesday in November is looming upon us and it's time to vote again. Not for the president but for our governor, senator, and other local reps. So do your research, get out there and vote... if you aren't the voting type, please don't complain to me about the government because I won't take your complaints seriously. Also if you are tying to be elected to anything please don't have a name like Cookie, Shanaynay or Demontravius because I won't take you seriously either.
