President, Nu Beta Chapter
SUNY, Oswego

Today I voted in my first presidential election. I have been waiting for this day for so long. Ever since I was in middle school I have been interested in politics. When I was in 7th grade I was given the opportunity to attend government day where I sat with my county legislature as he voted on bills. I thought to myself, I can’t wait until I have the chance to vote on something that will help change people’s lives. It’s especially exciting that one of my first times voting was for the President of The United States of America. Many of my friends are in the same situation that I am however they do not share the same excitement. They feel that they were “robbed” of their first time voting for the President of the United States because of the candidate choices.  My response to them and to anyone else who feels that way is you have to look behind the names and behind the media scrutiny. Look at their plans and policies, the way they carry themselves and their overall attitude. From this choose the candidate that you most identify with and can be proud to call the President of The United States. That is what I did and walking out of the polling place I felt confident in my decision. I felt empowered that I, a woman, could vote when so many years ago women just like me could not vote. I was not going to waste this opportunity.
