Vote.

Today when I get off work, Lily and I will stand in line (hopefully not too long) to cast our ballot. I think it's very important to bring her with me so she can see her mommy participating in the election process. I want to encourage you to take your kids with you today, especially your daughters. Remember, it hasn't been that long since women weren't allowed to vote.

"We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever." —Susan B. Anthony, Declaration of Rights for Women, July 1876

Well said, friend, well said.

A woman called in to the radio station this morning to ask if you were allowed to bring your kids with you to vote. The radio host asked her why kids wouldn't be allowed. Wow.

I absolutely agree! Unfortunately, I voted today at a retirement community so there weren't any at my polling place. ;)

We always take our kids with us to vote. Yesterday they each got a sticker, too. I remember going with my Daddy in 1988, and I thought it was pretty neat.
