Today is election day and I hope that you are voting today (or have already sent in your absentee ballots).
One thing I do caution about people who are eligible to vote is that they make themselves aware of what they are voting for. It takes five minutes to get caught up on all the propositions and it is worth it.
I remember when I first registered to vote. I had just arrived at San Jose State and one of the tables out on campus had people asking people to register. I had just turned 18 that summer and this was one of the things that I had looked forward to do.
