Today I Voted

Today was the Democratic and Republican primaries in New York State.

Not surprisingly, Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary and Donald Trump won the Republican primary.

Today I voted.

Among the iconic and most basic human rights that are listed on the Bill Of Rights, one of the most important is the right to vote. It guarantees all citizens have a voice in how their country is being run.

I voted today not just because it is a privilege, but because it is my right and responsibility.  There are many countries around the world where voting rights are severely restricted or non-existent, especially for women.

I voted today because 100 years ago, women were still fighting for the right to vote.

Today I voted, did you?
