My husband and I just voted, and it it very exciting that we did! We live in a swing state, so it is nice to actually feel like our votes count. I know I know, all our votes count. But I grew up in a Democrat state where it felt like my vote never mattered. Now I feel like I really matter! My husband has never voted before (Tsk, tsk) and so he was excited to do this for the very first time.
This was a difficult election for many Christians. Do we vote for someone who claims to be a Christian but doesn't act like one, or vote for a morman? Do we just not vote? In the end, I took a lesson I learned from my political science college courses: If you don't vote, your vote goes by default to the person you wouldn't have voted for. So I voted for the candidate I felt would uphold more of my Christian values.
