Election Day 2020 Unlike Any Other Year
Despite all the negativity leading up to it, Election Day is one of my favorite days of the year.
Seeing folks energetically lined up to do their civic duty.
Older couples, hand-in-hand.
Teens voting for the first time accompanied by their proud parents.
Moms with little kids... who excitedly put their "Future Voter" stickers on their jackets.
And the poll workers who have selflessly volunteered their time to help keep the process running smoothly.
The whole scene just gets me choked up every time.
Because voting is important.
And to see all those fine Americans taking it seriously... and showing up... fills me with pride for our country.
This year is a little different due to the pandemic.
Some states allowed early voting to help lessen crowds.
And many folks, like me, have already voted by mail.
I'm sure going to miss the energy of voting in person. I might drive by my polling place just to see the excitement.
If you haven't yet voted, I hope you'll be at your polling place today.
Thomas Jefferson once said, "We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate."
Choose to participate today. Vote.
