Vote!

Primary elections were held in Kentucky yesterday. I actually got out and voted, which is unusual for my age demographic. Of course, only one person out of the four people for whom I voted won. What amused me most were the primary results for the mayoral race. We don’t have partisan elections for that office. Everyone votes their preference in the primary, and the top two go on to compete for the November elections. I carefully examined each of the candidates before finally choosing the one I wanted to vote for. As it turns out, she was the underdog (and came in last). Of course, I would vote for the underdog, even when I don’t realize I am doing it.
