Election day is one of my most favorite days of the year. I was a political science major and a how political junky so it is natural that I would be drawn to this day. I find it so amazing that on election day no matter who we are, what we do, how much money we earn, what color our skin, we all go to our local fire halls, schools, municipal buildings, and vote for our elected officials. Everyone’s vote counts the same. Are there problems with our system of course but how lucky are we to live in a country where we are able to do all of this. And we do it peacefully. Every four years there is a transfer or power and there is no need for military intervention or force. No matter which side you voted for yesterday today the sun shines just a little brighter because of our process.
