On my way to class today I voted. Here in Chicago we have a window of a week before election day where we can visit any one of fifty polling places to make our voice heard. This wasn't available to me in our last presidential election and I remember voting day being a bit insane. Today was less so, although being in the middle of a city with three million residents is never going to be without its glitches. Lines were long (a good sign--people are voting) and the ballot here went on forever. Six pages of people and positions I was unfamiliar with. So I voted. One check mark for the next president of our country.
I may not tell you who to vote for or who I voted for but I would tell you TO vote: it's your voice.
