Today is the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment was ratified by a single vote! I'm pretty proud of having a 100 percent voting record, having never missed a primary or general election since I turned 18 despite having moved states four times, changed addresses eight times, and twice registered to vote on the last possible day. Thank you, thank you.
