Today, because I will be on the road next Tuesday, I voted early.
I'm always happy and excited to vote, because I consider it to be one of the greatest gifts and privileges that I enjoy as a citizen of the U.S.
If you've already voted or intend to vote, thank you, and good on you.
If you're considering skipping the polls this year, please don't. Please. So many elections are critical this year, with the most critical of all being, of course, the contest for the presidency of our country. If you read this blog regularly, you already know that I desperately want to keep Trump out of that office, which is one of the many reasons why I voted today for Hillary Clinton for President.
If you also want to keep Trump far, far away from control of our country, vote for Clinton.
If, like me, you want to get rid of our state's awful HB2 law, vote in a new governor and new legislators.
Even, though, if you oppose me on every issue, I want you to vote. If I'm going to lose, I'd far rather it be to the will of the overwhelming majority of my fellow citizens than to the decisions of a minority of them.
