    I am a Voter

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ShanaLou received a phone call from the President and felt inspired to vote after her 6 month old daughter became elated by hearing his voice.. '[He] reminded us to vote to continue the progress instead of sliding backward to the failed policies of the past,' she said.
    - sjunca, CNN iReport producer

    Being a new mom and working full time, I was thinking of not voting this year until I received a recorded call from the President reminding us to vote.  I quickly grabbed my video camera to record this and as I saw the excitement on my daughter's face (6 months old), I realized "I need to vote so that I set a good example for my daughter and to ensure that she grows up understanding how important the Right to Vote is."
