Voting: A 5-Year-Old’s Experience

I went to the polls on my own today for the first time in a long time (remember when Jack Henry thought we were going boating?:)), after first helping out at the older boys’ Kids Voting event, which was fun.

After lunch bunch was over, I picked Jack Henry up from his preschool, which is also a polling place. He offered the following (and retold it to his brothers almost verbatim an hour later):

“Voting is important, but you have to be 18 to really vote. Today, we voted on snack. It was graham crackers versus animal crackers. It was a close race, but I barely won, and we had graham crackers today. But look on the bright side: tomorrow we get to have animal crackers!”

So to all of you whose candidate may not win tonight, look on the bright side: tomorrow, there will be animal crackers.
