D.C. Residents participating as campaigners and voters in the Chesapeake Primary,

If you live in any of the states having primaries today, VOTE! That's all I'm gonna say.

Okay, that's not all I'm going to say, because I have to give a shout out to Doll, Mark, and Catherine who are up at Eugene Meyer Elementary School today encouraging D.C. citizens to vote. It's 29 degrees outside right now and they're out there urging their neighbors and D.C. residents to exercise one of the most important rights we have in this country: the right to self-determination. The right to vote.

Mark, who told me this year's presidential race has inspired him like none other.
He's not alone in that!

Please, exercise your right to make a difference. Even if you feel like voting in the primaries doesn't matter (or if you live in a federal district or territory where it seems like it doesn't matter), do it anyway.

Thank you!

Bev: Vicarious voting from the former motherland is totally allowed and welcome!

AE: I think today's turn out was pretty impressive and so inspiring. Change seems to be in the air!

Niki: Hear! Hear! If you don't vote, you can't complain later. (Fortunately, I voted, so I don't have to worry about y'all kickin' my butt!) ;-)
