In a year Chuckie gets to vote
Emily, aged 10
Out of the mouths of babes.
Emily is my 10 year old daughter and Chuckie is Chuck, my 17 year old son.
We have always taken our kids to the polls with us when they were young. I wanted them to see us vote and grow up with a sense of it's importance.
The notion that my son would be allowed to vote in a year seemed very cool to her. Something to be envied.
My 10 year old daughter can see that voting is something to look forward to when you become an adult, why can't adults see this?
