"The election process in our country and politics in general are subjects that have always inspired me. The 2016 presidential election has been referred to as the “election of the century,” and I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to be a participant. I’m glad I had a chance to experience the entire process with ‘new’ candidates, rather than an incumbent and a challenger. I always follow the elections very closely from the time that the candidates announce they are running. Right from the beginning there was a stark difference between the two major political parties in how many candidates were running in each party. But despite the high or low number of candidates, one theme that resonated in both parties was the primary voters’ desire to select a political ‘outsider.’ Many polls have been conducted that suggest that a majority of the electorate believes our country is headed in the wrong direction and that Washington is broken. I don’t recall this general feeling being as strong as it has been this election cycle. It concerns me that the country is so divided, but I’m even more concerned that our citizens are overwhelmingly pessimistic about the country’s path. It is very important to me to be an informed voter so that I can be confident that I made the right choice today.

 

After all of the drama leading up to the party conventions, it was exciting to see both major political parties choose their presidential nominees. In the end, after all the polls, conventions, debates, commercials, and news reporting, it really comes down to our democracy and individual votes by ‘We the People.’ As I cast my own vote this morning, I thought about the incredible system of government that our Founding Fathers established so that I could have my voice heard. Their tremendous insight so many years ago has provided my fellow Americans and many generations to come with the opportunity to have a say in the way we live our lives. I can think of no greater privilege than to be a voter in this election and, more importantly, to be a citizen of the great United States of America."
