election day!

On another note, want to hear something funny? So yesterday was the primary in many states, including my own home state of NH. Since I moved to DC four years ago, I've always voted absentee ballot and continued to vote there. At first, it was because I worked on the Hill for one of my Congressman and when doing so, you maintain your home state residency (loved that, bc I didn't pay DC income tax and NH has no income tax!). Since I left the Hill, I've continued to vote absentee, since I have no voting representative in Congress by living in DC.

So a few weeks ago, I got my absentee ballot in the mail. I began my vote, and noticed that in several categories, it said "vote no more then five" and there were only two or three people running. This was for the local things- state rep in Concord and such. So, I wrote myself in, hehe. My father is really involved in local politics and was actually a state rep from my town for six years when I was really young. He helps out on election day, working in the polls and counting ballots.

My mother texted me last night to tell me that I got three votes!!!! Mine, my best friend who wrote me in, and one more...likely my mother, hahaha.

I told Steve that this is a sign from God that we should move back to NH :)

Wow, maybe you'll win! Then what would you do?

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that you are probably equally or more qualified than most people running for office. Go for it. The political landscape needs smart, energetic, young people to shake things up.
