Ever since I was little the one thing I have been looking forward to growing older is turning eighteen. Not because I can now legally do certain things but the rights which I gain when I turn eighteen. Every time there was an election, whether national or local I would go to the voting booths with my parents and help them pull down the lever which cast their vote. My parents instilled in me at a very young age the importance and freedom which comes with having the right to choose. So these last few years I have been very excited and eager to gain the right to vote. Especially during the election last year, I wanted my vote to count, but even though I couldn't have a ballot at least I could have an opinion. I might be one the very few teenagers I know who loves politics and fashion at the same time. I could watch a political debate, or read an article in the paper and be completely fascinated by it. I hate how so many of my peers care so little about this special right, especially when its girls, don't they remember what our fore mothers fought so hard for us to gain? By voting we are honouring their hard work and sacrifice's which they made. So I know where I'll be when my birthday rolls around in a few months, registering to vote!
P.S. Sorry for the kinda random post about the importance of voting, especially since its not a national election year! I figure its always good to be reminded of this at randoms times though... it keeps us in check!
