I turned in my voter registration form at the Registrar of Voters. This is one of the rights I've been eagerly anticipating.
I have never voted before. I moved to the States when I was 17, and the UK voting age is 18, same as it is here. I received a voter form for the UK in the mail, but never got involved. I was young, didn't much care about politics in Blighty (or anywhere at that time, for that matter) so I never voted. In the last few years this right is one that has become more important to me, especially as I have watched the changes around me that I have had no say in. I cannot wait to finally make my voice heard.
Heck, I even want to serve on a jury!
