Thanks for voting!

I am writing this on Election Day before the results are posted because it’s not about who won or lost, but that we have this right and responsibility to vote. I am grateful to live in a country that has democratic elections, and a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”

We have the right to vote because people throughout our history have fought and died for that right. We have the right because people today work to make that happen. I thank you if you did any of the following:

worked at the polls

helped the League of Women Voters or other informative group

worked or volunteered for a campaign

ran for office

researched the issues or candidates 

had a civil discussion with a friend or family member

wrote for the free press to inform voters 

voted early or on Election Day.

Thanks for participating in the process. 

I love to share my passion for Alaska and its history in my writing for young adults and their grown ups.
