Doesn’t Get My Vote

| ID, USA | Related | June 10, 2016

(My mom and I are going together to vote. I’ve been terrible at keeping up on local politics, so when I get to the voting booth I only vote on the one issue I know about, figuring a misinformed vote does more damage than no vote at all. Afterwards…)

Mom: “You voted really fast. Did you just not vote for anybody?”

Me: “Pretty much. The only thing I knew anything about was the library bond, so I just left the rest of the ballot blank.”

Mom: “You should have asked me! I was right next to you. I would have told you who to vote for!”

Me: “Doesn’t that defeat the point of voting in the first place?”
