Two More Weeks

It is two more weeks until my State’s primary and I am actually feeling like my vote will mean something this time. For States that fall after Super Tuesday, so much is usually a foregone conclusion that the mentality is “why bother”. Both parties are running close contests this year. So far there doesn’t appear to be a clear winner on either side of the fence.

The record breaking voter turn-out is encouraging too. I firmly believe no one politician is going to be able to get America back on track. No matter who is elected, they will need the involvement of the American people to accomplish anything. The number of people participating in primaries is a sign Americans are starting to understand they need to insert themselves into the solution. I hope the trend continues beyond the voting booth and into their daily lives and habits.
