Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard that the USA is electing a new President in November. Before that happens, there's something called primaries. That's state elections to pick the top candidate from both parties. We pretty much have 2 parties in this country, Democrats and  Republicans. Today is Super Tuesday, which is when 11 states votes. In Georgia, where I live, you go to your polling place, fill out a form, mark Dem or Rep, go to the voting machine and vote. We also have early voting, which we did a couple of weeks ago.

Yes, a selfie station.

 After all the primaries happen, the parties have conventions to set agendas, platforms, fight about stuff. In November, the general election happens and we get a new President to replace Obama. The new president takes office in January.  The first time I voted was in 1976, 40 years ago. I don't think I've ever missed an election. There's a couple of ways to vote: absentee ballot, if you're going to be out of your voting area on election day, on the day at the polls, or early voting. Georgia has all 3. So, go vote if you live in one of the Super Tuesday states, go vote when the primary happens in your state, and go vote in November.

I promise my blog wont turn into a blog about the election. That would get tired pretty quick.


  1. I'm fascinated with politics, yours and ours! Post as much as you like, you've explained your voting system way better than most of our newspapers have.
    I can't believe anyone is voting for Trump - the man's a joke. xxx

    1. Neither can I. That I'll never be able to explain.

  2. Yes, thank you for that description. That man is all over our news up here too and I'm having nightmares!
