Voting for kids by kids

  I did my civic duty yesterday and took the two little ones with me.  You know the two inquisitive ones.  I almost didn't take them to vote with me but I'm glad I did.  The experience opened their eyes to endless possibilities, a new vocabulary and a great introduction to their future.

  I explained each step as I went through the process and compared the importance of voting even for something as important as what's for dinner or pudding or ice cream for dessert.  So with anything what's better than a lesson, but a hands on lesson to sink it in.

  We had two presidential hopefuls.  Sophia the First and Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

Each party was represented by their own spokesperson.

Cases were stated as well as a family history or the business they are in (fighting bad guys and living in castles).

 Every vote needs ballots.

 Every voting station needs campaign signs.

 We made special accommodations for voting.  A sticker was to be chosen and placed on the ballot.

 All ballots were collected in a specific box.

The spokespeople were together totally the votes!  

We are now following the laws designated by our new president.

 I don't have a problem with eating pizza but I hope we are not relocating any time soon.
