I am finally a registered US voter

I cannot remember when the last time I voted back in the Philippines was. I admit I hate politics but I need to vote to support the politicians that I think is perfect for my vote. I always vote for politicians whom I believe will help the people. I do miss my right to vote since I left my home town.

When my driver license is about to expire before my birthday, I renew it and registered to vote. Do you know that your driver license always expire on your birthday? You have to remember that every time it is your birthday.  You have no idea how many times I have to think to register or not to register. I finally decided to register to vote since I am an US citizen for almost four years now.

Yesterday, I received a welcome letter from our Congress representative that I am now officially can vote. I am very much excited to cast my ballot. There are elections coming during the next month. These are just the local election. I am very excited and been asking my husband on what to do when you are in the precinct. It is just like the Philippines election so I think I will do just fine during my first vote.
