Cheers and applause for my first time voter daughter this morning!

We walked to our polling place at 730 am, not much of a line so we only waited about 15 minutes. When my daughter presented her voter card the poll worker announced "we have a first time voter here" which gave way to cheers and applause by everyone there.

What a wonderful and positive experience for her and both of us, as we cast our votes for Hillary Clinton, the next President of the United States!!

She was a Bernie supporter but was happy to vote for Hillary too.
