My daughter will be 18 in six months, and thus eligible to vote in the next presidential election. Strolling down Broadway at a street fair Sunday afternoon, we stopped at a campaign table, and she decided to register to vote! She was the first person to be registered by the just-up-and-running campaign office, and when she was done, they asked her to hold a sign so they could take pictures of her. Of course, I took pictures of her too. This is a major right of passage; we were all kinds of excited. Hard to imagine she will be a college freshman when she votes for the first time next year.
