This is the second election I voted since I got my citizenship. I didn’t count the first one because it was absentee and I didn’t really understand the meaning of my action. It wasn’t a presidential election either. But I have to say ever since I’ve became a citizen of the United States (October 2001 – right after 9/11 happened) I voted in every presidential election.
Being a woman, I am very grateful that I have the right I have now. I can not imagine not able to vote. It’s like telling me that I can’t be an engineer because it’s a man’s job!
So exercize your right as a citizen of United State of America. It is my previledge to be part of this great country.
