I have never registered to vote. I am 38 and I have never voted. I never followed politics closely because I never registered so why would I? I used to hear people get in arguments over politics and I would just sit back and listen.

Honestly, I was kind of happy I wasn’t a part of that argument or conversation. I wouldn’t say anything because I had no say and it was completely my choice. I choose to not be apart of that conversation. If asked, I’m not ashamed to admit I am not registered to vote.

Sure, I have my own views on things. Last presidential election I would have voted for Hilary but I am in CT and that’s who a lot of people voted for. In my mind, my one little vote wouldn’t have mattered at all because the majority rules and the majority was already in her favor.

I read multiple news outlets everyday, I am aware of what is going on in the world. It’s not like I am in a bubble. I have views and opinions that I talk to my husband and select friends about. I am following the current presidential race and the people running and dropping out. I don’t understand the entire process but I understand a good part of it. What I don’t understand I look up.

Some of my friends have preached about how important it is to vote in every election. I smile and nod and listen but I still never registered.
This year I think I am going to register. I don’t know why or what is so special about this year, but I think it’s time for me to get a little more active and start being apart of the conversation a little more.

I still don’t think I will get involved in arguments. I think everyone has a right to have their own opinions. I don’t think It’s my place to educate people on my beliefs. I think I’ll start with registering and learning the process better myself.
What about you? Do you vote? Would you vote?

  1. For so long I thought that my vote wouldn’t make a difference how was little old me going to make a difference but over the years and the more I have voted the more I have felt that I can make a difference. If everyone thought as I did then no one would vote and nothing would change.
