Doing My Duty

In America, turning 18 has its perks.

I mean, after all, you're finally considered a legal adult!

Y'all know me, I wasn't interested in cigarettes or porn (!!!), and while lottery tickets do interest me a little (blame my grandma, she's been letting me scratch off hers for years), there was only one perk that really meant anything to me.


When my grandma was driving me home on Friday, I asked her how you register to vote, since this is a midterm election year.  She explained it to me, and informed me that a place in Jacksonville had a one-stop voting station, where you can register and vote in the same place.  So we decided to leave a little bit early on Monday and get that done, since I really wasn't sure if I'd be home again before Election Day.

So we went.  And it was fast. And easy.

As a Government major, don't you think it'd be a little hypocritical of me not to vote now that I finally can? :)

Plus, come on, you get this totally awesome sticker as a prize! ;)
