Early voting (in-person voting) begins in Louisiana today. Belle ad I intend to vote later today or tomorrow, but this morning I fulfilled my duty and had a long talk with my mother abut the sample ballot and what my thoughts are on the many, varied candidates and proposals that we'll be deciding on.
My mom makes up her own mind, but she asks me anyway. She is a reliable Republican, and takes a keen interest in her voting I don't try to sway her vote, but I try to give her my best guess.
I'm happy to do it, and I enjoy talking with my mom. I'm glad that she values my opinion.
