In our home, politics and civic responsibility are important. I remember registering to vote way back when I was 18, and almost half a decade ago, my oldest excitedly did the same. The last presidential primary caucus even left us with 2 delegates in the house - for different candidates!
We have a voting routine. Each of us, my husband Sam, daughter Amy, and I will take time with the hardcopy voters' pamphlet, spend some time researching the candidates online, carefully mark our choices, seal our ballot and then pass the booklet on the the next person. Then on Election Day, one (or all) of us will deliver our ballots to our drop box.
Ultimately, whether or not we follow a specific routine or not is less important than the actual action of voting, but that left me wondering - do you have a voting routine in your home? Do you fill out the ballot the moment it's received? Wait until the last minute? Somewhere in between? Please share it with me!
