Voting is an emotional experience for me -- just is.
I once held a paper ballot to my heart before putting it in the ballot machine --
and looked up to see one of the volunteers behind the table share a knowing smile.
I don't vote out of fear or anger -- I vote based upon hope, faith & knowledge.
I am not cynical about government -- I have seen the important role it can play in helping people.
So, I called my son to remind him to come on over to our Otter Creek Town Hall to vote.
It is what we do --- with pride.
