Thoughts on Election Day

November 8, 2005

I Voted Today stickerI voted today.

I’ll be the first to say that America has one of the best election processes in the world, and our democratic federal republic (most of the time) works really well.

I’d like to know what you think. If you voted, what do you think could be improved about the system? If you didn’t, why didn’t you?

I think the biggest improvement for me would be more information about issues and candidates (especially local ones). I walked into the polling place without a clue about any of the local elections. I ended up leaving the questions blank, but it would’ve really been nice if I could have made a good decision about who I should support.

By this time next year I’ll do something about it.
