Aloha Friday - Do You Make Time To Vote?


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

One thing my parents instilled in me while growing up was the importance of voting.  Once I was old enough, my mother would insist I make time offering to drive me or do whatever it took to make sure I cast my ballot.


"After all", she would say, "thousands of women worked tirelessly to change the laws so we could vote, and if you don't vote, you have no right to bitch about politics."  

To this day, I have not missed a single opportunity to vote and have my voice, however insignificant, heard and be counted.

How about you?  Do you take the time to vote??

Yes, I vote. It's a great thing for us to be involved in the governmental process and I feel it's important to take part.

I missed voting in a local election twice. Honestly, the guilt was overwhelming so I may get to the ballot box at the last second, but I get there. Great post!

I found you from the Friday Blog Hop and am following.

In my country I didn't vote. I always wanted to , bu tit's a choice of vote or my life. I choose life.

Here in USA I got the chance to vote for the first time last year and I was so wow. It's an amazing feeling.

Yes, I think it's very important for people to vote. I also make sure I take my girls with me so they can share in the process.
