The girls were really interested in the voting process this year. They asked lots of questions about what kinds of things we would be voting for and enjoyed seeing our mail-in ballots. It has been a great opportunity to talk about the responsibility and privilege of our right to vote.
Today, the girls both made campaign posters, complete with a statement of the things they would do as governor to make our state better.
Natalie said, “I will take care of the environment and make sure the hospitals have very, very good equipment.”
Delaney said, “I will take care of the ocean, make sure doctors have the right equipment if people get sick, and make sure that California looks beautiful.”
Apparently, they are both very concerned about doctors having good equipment – so funny!
Since, of course, they had to go to bed before any results were announced, they are looking forward to hearing all about the election in the morning.
Did you do any special Election Day activities? I’m thinking a mock election would be fun someday…. :)
