A 114-year-old Chicago woman recently registered to vote, according to the Associated Press.
Virginia Call had apparently voted up until about 20 years ago when she moved and forgot to update her voter registration information. Now, she can vote if she chooses to.
Lots of cynics will say that one person's vote doesn't make a difference, but I really believe the upcoming presidential election is one of the most important in years. As the red and blue state divide of the last two elections have shown, a significant chunk of America thinks we should go one way, while the other chunk believes we should go another.
As always, if you can't be bothered to vote, don't complain to me when you are unhappy with our government. If you don't vote, you are blowing a chance to have your voice heard.
And that is nobody's fault but your own.
So stop your whining. This means you!
