MH900384726History is full of interesting facts. Thousands and thousands of things happen each day all over the world. Some of these things become important in history and often affect the lives of people many years into the future. Today in 1922 in the United States, the US Supreme Court upheld the 19th amendment to the Constitution that gives women the right to vote. As a female citizen of the United States, I find this a significant part of history.

I still remember the first time I voted, and I have voted in every presidential election since then. As a citizen I think it is important to vote, but I also think it is important to be informed about whom and what you are voting for.

Do you remember the first time you voted? Tell me about it.
