The opportunity to vote for the 2013 presidential election was a learning experience of a lifetime.
I am one lucky guy to turn 18 just in time to vote.
My dad helped me through the process and assisted me when I registered for the first time.
I already knew whom I wanted for my next president.
After doing research in class and figuring out which candidate would benefit me the most, I made my decision.
When I received my ballot in the mail, I was excited. I sat down at the table and looked through the ballot closely.
Most of it was like a foreign language to me.
I called my dad into the room and he explained most of it to me.
I found the presidential candidate’s arrows. I filled in the arrow for President Obama. I looked through and filled in other arrows as I went along.
After I was done, I felt good. The night after, my dad and I turned in our ballots and received our stickers.
I have to say, voting for the next president was an awesome opportunity and an awesome feeling.
Voting is awesome because it is nice to know that you have an impact on whom the next president might be.
It also brings the feeling of patriotism and it is a good feeling. I recommend everyone of age to vote in the next four years.
