Early Voting

"Vote" Cedar Park, 2018
“Vote” Cedar Park, 2018

こんばんは。Today I voted in the primaries for our upcoming elections. Later this year we’ll be voting for the governor’s seat, as well as our local reps for Congress. I’ve never voted in the primaries before, and I don’t know all the candidates, so I only cast my ballot for a few of them who I wanted to support.

Speaking of voting, I came across a quote that I saved a while back, which says “We vote three times a day”. It’s in the context of voting with our wallets and where we buy our food. Since corporations often support certain legislation, we can imagine that the dollars that we spend at their stores or restaurants as spent on the corporation’s causes. For instance, I don’t agree with Chick-Fil-A’s stance on gay marriage, so they won’t be receiving any of my money. It does take time to research these issues, and honestly, I don’t know what all these corporations stand for, but I try to find out whenever possible. I do what I can, I suppose.

I hope you had a nice Wednesday!
