Ericka’s Voting Story

The reason I vote is because it’s a way for people to hear my concerns and a way to express my voice.

The day I turned 18 I registered, it was the first time I felt like an adult, I could make my own choice.

The first time I took my son to vote with me, he was so proud that the voting official let him put the ballot in the box, when I explained it was his first time they said to him “Thank you sir, for helping us with the elections” he had such a smile on his face and ever since then he goes with me to vote. For him it’s a treat.

The first election I voted in was for the Clinton/Bush. It was the first time I looked at the news to make sure I made the right choice.

I like voting at the poll. There is such an energy there.
