    Election Day: Prove you voted

    Today I voted


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     crossn81, 29, of Minneapolis, says he was 'hopeful that Obama would be able to unite the country and instead the Republicans have voted against proposals that they normally would support.'

    'I'm hopeful that we'll continue to raise up great leaders and critical thinkers who are able to understand and parse issues without having to be influenced by their union, church, or another group that says, "if so and so doesn't get elected, we'll be ruined." The reality is, we have the chance to change policy every year and we have to vote for and elect people who are able to lead and who value what we value - even if it looks different.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Today I did my annual civic duty and voted. I voted for indivduals who I feel represent my beliefs, not the hyperbole spewed from people trying to intimidate me.  I care for the unborn, but I also care for the born who don't have adequate care. I value fiscal constraint, but I also value quality health care for everyone. I don't value hate or fear.
