My First Time


…and it was over.

I jammed my little fake pencil through those holes, watched the chads drop, got my sticker, and then proudly walked out of the local elementary school. I was 18. And I had voted.

As part of Women’s Voices. Women’s Vote. I’m telling you all about MY first time.

Just as important as the first time I voted, was what lead up to that vote. The foreplay, if you will…
I turned 18 on December 10th, 1992. I woke up that morning and registered to vote. Then I went and got a tattoo. No lie.

I couldn’t wait to vote, all revved up watching Clinton win that November and just missing my big chance to make my vote count in a presidential election. I was editor of my high school newspaper, and I thought I knew how to change the world with just my vote.

Ok, bad example. But my point is I was psyched. And, xxxxxx years later (you do the math, I’m tired) I’m still psyched. Because as much as I’m disgusted with the current state of politics in this country, I still have hope. I still know my vote will mean something. I am still making my voice heard.

Make yours heard this November. 20 million women DID NOT VOTE in the last election. That can not happen again. Spread the word and blog your first time.


  1. I cast my first one as a soldier, and it was for-yep-Walter Mondale 🙂

    I’ve never regretted that one. The one I regret, I cast for John McCain in 2000. I know better, far better, now. Never again!

  2. Hey! I didn’t get a sticker after my first time…doing anything! What a rip off!

    I vote at every election…local, state, national.

    I hate hearing people (and sometimes they sound proud) say that they don’t vote. I’m sure that contributes to the crappy state our government is in. I just want to kick those people in the ass!

  3. I love the idea of voting…I voted as soon as I became ‘of age’ and I haven’t stopped since…If you don’t vote…don’t complain! It gives you a voice in this huge world of ours…It’s freedom, it’s what being American is all about.

  4. I appreciate that you are always moving towards something very positive and powerful and motivating others to do the same. Thank you.

  5. i was SOOO excited to vote in ’96. i was abroad in israel for the year and managed to get my butt to the consulate and voted absentee.

  6. I’m so glad that you posted about this! We really need all the women to get out there and vote!

    It makes me so pissed to hear people bitch about our country’s leaders, yet in the same breath they tell you that they didn’t vote. If you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to bitch. End of story.

  7. I actually PRE registered to vote, so I had my voter card mailed to me shortly after my 18th birthday.

    Yep. You get to do extraordinarily dorky things in AP Political Science.

  8. I also could not wait to make my voice heard through the ballot, although I wound up being absent for my first time. (I did blog the anti-climactic experience, if anyone cares about the boring details.) Ah, optimistic youth! Still, I vote at every election just like Denise.

  9. The Australian government sends everyone a voting registration card on their 17th birthday (can vote at 18), so a lot of people here tend to pre-register. Voting is compulsary too, which at least gives everyone the right to complain about those in power!

  10. Joe Kotecki says:

    I think it’s great to read the views of a fellow “Koteckian” (my term), keep up the good work. I’ll post again soon, hopefully with something better.

  11. I liked this so much I wrote a post on the topic. Thanks for the idea!

  12. All you lucky children, getting to vote for Clinton the first time!
    The first year I voted was the year Ronald Reagan got elected. We all spent the evening wondering how long it would be before we had to flee to Canada. And the sad thing is, that compared to what we have now, those really WERE “the good old days”!

  13. Yeah, the year I voted for the first time, I got to hear George HW Bush give the inaugural speech. Ugh!

  14. yeahhhhhhhhhhhh

  15. For now Assparadise suggests 82 long rough scenes, each one as a rule 30-40 minutes long and and coming with a truckload of filmed pics as well as around 150 real photographs.
    truly of the lassies are adorable and the site seems to make use of a lot of slipshods as well as the chance break from tolerably well-well-known fuckmachines

    As the [url=]assparadise[/url] label of the site point ats one particular plus point on all the lasss is obviously in nub here, and if you adore nice, thirst-quenching bubble anus Assparadise is more or less as close to rapture as you can get. every one of fucked girls is well equipped in that noteworthy area, and the camera spends lots of time spun-out on all all magnificent buttocks – both in advance and subsequently the fortunate chap gets it.
    And verbal communication of the second, Assparadise is an all out sexy fucking website with each one on one sex, doubl eaction or many on one – the two end befalling more habitually in of late modernizes, and usually with more maids than gents in the division.

    If you’re looking for anal sex and sextet sex with binary penetration etc. this is not the good place all the same – I talled around four scenes with ass sex. The buttocks can unquestionably be in center of attention without anal porn, but I do invention myself hoping we like see filmed all all nice asses getting pumped in more than just a handful of scenes. But then yet again, I’m an anal perwert and if I had a select I wont ask for ass porn in damn near all rough model/young lady audiovisual I recense.
