Today is Primary day in Connecticut. I’m leaving for work early so that I can vote. In Connecticut, we don’t Caucus, we have Primaries and that means we have to vote on candidates within our own registered party. That’s fine with me, because I have my mind made up.
In Connecticut, we’re also voting on House of Representatives and Senators [Edit: in my town/district it turns out we’re only voting on Presidential candidates]. Unfortunately, we don’t get to vote out our governor. We have the governor who’s been voted as the worst governor in all of America. He’s corrupt and I have no clue how he ever made it into office higher than mayor.
Ahem, redirect. Today is Connecticut’s day, and this part of the anxiety will be over shortly. It’s worth it.
If you’re an American citizen, and you’re 18 years old or older, please register to vote. It’s your Constitutional right. I don’t care what part you register with, I don’t even really care who you vote for as long as you exercise your rights. Maybe you can’t vote today if you’re not registered yet, but you can vote in November. Please. Your vote counts more than it ever has before, especially in local elections.
Please vote. Please register to vote. It’s the most American thing you can ever do. It’s the most patriotic thing you can ever do. ::salutes::
