Primary Election In Florida

Today is Florida's primary election day. If you're a resident of my home state I hope that, unless you're a registered independent and thus unable to vote in the primary, you will make the effort to go to the polls and vote for the Presidential candidate you feel will do the best job in leading our nation, as well as any local races/issues that may be on your ballot.

When I realized I would not be back in Florida to vote in person, I took pains to have an absentee ballot mailed to me and then mailed it back to my local election office in plenty of time to be counted. Taking part in the process has always been important to me. even after feeling like the vote was rigged in 2000 and again in 2004 by purposeful miscounts or hacked computer records. Apathy is not the answer; rather an even more vigorous response in exercising the right to vote is warranted.

Glad to see that you voted. We went to the McCain rally and we voted early last week. Hope all is well with you.
