I heard stories of people in their 70’s and 80’s voting for the very first time in this election. I cannot imagine all that those people have seen in their lifetimes and can only guess at what compelled them to vote now. I can only say I am glad their voice was heard, glad their vote was counted, and glad they felt compelled to be a part of the democratic process at this time.
How I wish the polls were this crowded each and every time – whether for local, state, or national officials – people, we need to stand up and speak. Each vote matters.
