I LOVE seeing my 18 year getting ready to VOTE!!!!   This has been a fun election for me ... well, not all the political ads and such but watching my daughter, who just turned 18 on Sept 12 being procative about VOTING!!! She registered herself to vote! She has been reading the internet articles. She watched the debates tonight between Obama and Romney.   I have not tried to sway her in either direction.  I even gave her examples of different people that we know who would vote Republican or Democrat and why.  Don't just take your parent or teacher side .... you have a voice and make it count!!!!
