If you can’t remember your first election, I certainly can.
In 2008 I sat on my futon in my college dorm room and sealed the envelope on my Illinois absentee ballot with a mixture of dread and hope.
A few years later, I drove myself to a local Nebraska precinct to vote in the state and municipal races.
I was nervous, and probably babbled to the woman signing me in.
Stepping up to the booth, I felt like I always do now when I vote, that the weight of American democracy depended on my shoulders.
