1) How old were you when you voted for the first time? Well I voted for some stuff in high school but my first real election was when I was 18. I turned 18 in 1996 so there was a presidential election.
2) What was the contest at the top of the ballot? I actually cannot remember. I suppose Bill Clinton and Im not sure who else.
3) Can you walk to your polling place? Absolutely its only a couple of blocks
4) Have you ever run for public office? No
5) Have you run for office in a club or school or on a board? Yeppers. I held many offices when I was involved with FHA (Future Homemakers of America). I was Secretary, VP, and even President. Other than that, I dont think Ive held any other offices.
Isn’t it funny how quickly we can forget those old elections that were so important at the time?
I left an answer to your comment, but in case you don’t see it, I’d love to see your poem.
I once campaigned for Richard Nixon! Oh, the shame of it. 😉
