We vote at a James Island Charter High School and stood out in the rain for a little bit this morning before they opened the doors. Before we got through the doors, the line didn’t seem too long. Then we got inside and found out the line went down two long hallways and double-backed along those same hallways to the cafeteria where the voting booths were set-up.
Rather than being annoyed though at the length of the line and the amount of time I had to stand there, I was heartened.
In the 2008 general election, only 63 percent of eligible voters voted and that was the highest record since 1968.
Please go out today and vote and blow that 63 percentage rate out of the water. With all that we have as a nation, that rate should be, at the very least, 90 percent or higher.
