    If I didn’t vote, both my parents would return from the grave and make me suffer… almost as much as the effects of failing to vote might.

    Since 1980 (when I became eligible to vote), I have missed precisely one election. It was a single issue, unopposed, local election and I only missed it because I spent the day at the hospital where my husband was having an emergency appendectomy.

    I still felt guilty when I realized I had missed it.

    Voting is not just a right, it’s a responsibility of citizenship.

    I registered online to vote early and absentee in MN, but I haven’t gotten anything in the mail yet. Our polling place is in our town’s courthouse, and even though it’s a new building, it’s not very handicapped accessible – you have to go to the fire station entrance to get into the building and then take the elevator up to the floor where the polling place is if you can’t navigate the steps into the front of the building. That wasn’t a problem when I was using a walker, but now that I have to use a mobility scooter, it’s an issue (small elevator) and not much room in the polling booths (not nearly enough for my scooter). I’ve been registered to vote ever since I moved to MN over 20 years ago, and this is the first time I’ve had to vote absentee. I’m not so sure it’s working for those of us who are disabled.
