It's that season of the year when lawn signs are sprouting as surely as flowers in the spring; elections are just around the corner. And so today we bring you a Civic Duty Friday Five.
1) How old were you when you voted for the first time?
2) What was the contest at the top of the ballot?
It was a Presidential race - Nixon vs McGovern. I did not vote for Richard Nixon. :-)
3) Can you walk to your polling place?
Yes. It's at my church
4) Have you ever run for public office?
5) Have you run for office in a club or school or on a board?
Yes - served as secretary in almost every organization I've ever belonged to, Elder in my home church before leaving for college, VP in my college sorority (at age 46!), and member of seminary student council
