Here is a nice way to both date yourself and get labled for your political leanings.
What was your first election? Was it the one immediatly after you came of age? Have you never voted? Was it only when you felt an important election had come about?
The first time I voted was just after I turned 18 in the 2000 primaries. I voted for Alan Keyes. I knew that he would not win but he was the one candidate that most closely matched my views. I am heartened to hear that he will be running for the senate in Illinois now and I hope he wins.
