As a Filipino American woman, I will be exercising my right to vote. I’ve done my research and have my voter cheat sheet ready. There are quite a few propositions on the California ballot and I want to make sure that I keep them all straight. My immigrant parents instilled a sense of civic responsibility early on… much to their dismay. My political leanings are radically different from theirs. Although we disagree, we respect the process. They will be voting in what is considered a swing state. Let’s hope that state swings in my candidate’s favor;)
For those in L.A., if you need extra incentive to vote, go to these places for some great freebies and discounts for showing your “I Voted” sticker.
