Song votes today for the first time. She is very excited about this. She could not vote in Laos, where she used to live.
Jane Smith is running for the school board. Song has talked with Jane. She agrees with Jane’s plan to solve school problems. Song wants her to win.
Song goes to the elementary school gym. That is where she votes. Song signs her name and address. A woman hands her a ballot. Song goes to a voting booth and votes. She fills in an oval by Jane Smith’s name with a black pen.
Song leaves the booth and puts her ballot in the sealed box. Someone gives her a sticker to wear. The sticker says, “I voted.”
She feels good about doing her part for her community. She hopes Jane wins.
