Don't say nuthin'

The first time I voted I just barely made the deadline to register. I had only been 18 for for a week or so when voting day came.

I was really nervous.

I thought it was a test. I stood in the long line with homemade flash cards, frantically trying to memorize my selections. I didn't realize that I could take my notes and sample ballot into the booth with me.

Registering, it's free. Voting, it's easy.

You can even take your notes with you. (Kerry, Kerry, Kerry)

Maybe I'll come down
