I know I should be more aware of my city and who’s representing it and where my tax money is going. When I went to vote this morning, the most exciting part besides contributing to the decision of the next U.S president was voting for or against bonds and specific taxes. The problem is I had no clue about these things, nor did I recognize any name on the ballot for a district judgeship. I feel overwhelmed.
As a young citizen, I have to say the city of Albuquerque should do a better job of informing its young voters about these sorts of things. Otherwise they might do what I did when I had a pop-quiz in high school: close my eyes and pick.
