Tonight we find out if the city I love is going to love its people. I sat at a table for a little over 4 hours this afternoon encouraging people to vote and explaining what the election was for. I feel like I haven't contributed as much as I would have liked to getting the English Only amendment shut down, but I feel good to know that I helped at all. The polls close in 30 minutes, and hopefully tonight I'll know the outcome of the election before I go to bed. I'm still not a fan of politics, but it's comforting to know that I can recognize my passions and work against things I feel undermine my values. I know my relative apathy isn't an aversion to politics; rather, I am simply too non-confrontational to get overly involved and invested unless I really care.
I think this is a big deal, and now I've done what I can. Now it's out of my hands, and I'm simply waiting on results.
