My Son Learns to Vote In NNY's 23RD District's Congressional Race
Children need to know what's involved in voting. David, my son, was asking me who I was going to vote for for Congressman- Owens or Hoffman.
He's 12 years old. They hear me talk about politics so I thought tonight would be a good time for him to see first hand how we do this.
I took him to my polling location and filmed the event. His choice for Congressman was Owens.
You see him give the "thumbs up" when he sees my choice.
Hope this helps, Bill.
David put the ballot in the electronic polling machine. This is the first year that we've used them. Last year was the levers, curtain and some privacy to make your decision.
David thought the process was pretty cool!
