I am an absentee voter so I bit the bullet and filled out my ballot. I like voting because I feel like I am doing my civic duty but I also kind of hate it. I research, I see the commercials and I read the newspaper articles yet still feel so overwhelmed and undereducated about the issues. The big issues also tend to drown out the smaller local issues. It is hard to decide between two candidates when I have never even seen their names before. How are you supposed to choose when all you know about them is their names?
