This is it: the climax of 18 months of campaigns, ads on the television, ads on the Internet, ads in the mailbox, ads on the radio and vast amounts of media coverage -- especially if you live in a so-called battleground state. I took my daughter with me to the polls this morning after explaining to her the importance of voting and how, in many places in the world, people don't have this right and responsibility. She's only 5, so it mostly went over her head, but I'll take any opportunity to give my kids a small civics lesson.
So, yes, I voted today. I hope you will, too.
