    One thing people love to say is "your vote doesn't count". Your vote counts in the Democratic primary for California...

    One thing my sister does is register for an absentee ballot. She can vote any time before Tuesday, which is easier for her and her kids.

    I like going to down to the booth though.

    We don't have a primary, but we have "vote by mail" and that's awesome.

    I was going to until I realized my primaries are not until next week.

    I voted for Ron Paul on the internet instead.

    Voting is fun. It's like giving blood without the prick or blood loss. My precinct was empty this morning though. Maybe if they handed out cookies and OJ like the Red Cross instead of the "I Voted" sticker they would get a better turn out. :)

    I wonder if my vote counts here in Utah.

    That's what I do. It's soooo much better than dealing with the mess in LA.

    I hope online voting happens sooner rather than later. I think it would increase voter turnout tremendously. It definitely would increase the number of young people that vote.
