Too many people in America take the right to vote for granted.  I’m always amazed when a developing country goes through its first democratic process – often you see lines of hundreds and hundreds of people turning out to vote.   

Here, even though there are some very decisive issues at play right now, you could vote easily and with no wait at all.  That is something that we should appreciate.   

Turns out that it was still a good year for voters, especially young ones, who turned out in droves.   I’m an ardent supporter of registering to vote and then putting it into action, and I’ve been involved with Rock the Vote before, so this makes me very happy.
