My Civic Duty

I voted by mail in ballot
Ever since reaching the age to become eligible to vote, I've never missed an election. Democracy may not perfect, but it sure beats the other forms of government I've witnessed first hand during my travels. This year's presidential election is a doozy, nearly everyone I've spoken to has had enough and just want it all to be over. Regardless of whom you are supporting, it has just gotten ugly and tiresome. That being said, I firmly believe that each of us as citizens has a civic duty to perform by participating in the election process. This year I'll be in Hong Kong for an extended trip, and on Election Day in the US, so I already exercised my votes through the mail in ballot. I doubt my single votes in California are enough to swing the results, but I feel better knowing that I have done so. After all, it is my right, and my tax dollars being spent. So I encourage you to vote. Do your civic duty, even if you have to hold your nose to cast your vote for a candidate who stinks. I cherish our democracy and I sincerely hope you do too.

There are no really good choices, unfortunately, but we will vote, nonetheless.
