Next my kids will want one too

May 29th, 2004 · 1 Comment

This morning I heard Abigail and Michaela (ages 5 and 3 respectively) asking each other: “Are you voting for Bush or for Kerry?”

Then I saw that Dean Esmay had linked to a newspaper report from Britain where a two-year-old has received a polling card, giving her the ability to vote in an upcoming election. Of course, it was an accident.

But I still won’t tell my children about it. Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to vote too…

    Awesome. My kids are 6, 4, 1. I didn’t want to have two kids, cause they’d likely vote opposite each other and have no influence in any election. At least w/ 3, two may vote for the same party. Unless of course they vote for a third party 🙁
