Love these ideas and the philosophy of voting with your kids.
We always used to go to the polls with Mikko … until Washington adopted a statewide mail-in ballot policy. So now we just try to discuss it with him.
I still love the conversations we get into, and how he sees the world through superhero lenses of good and evil. (Makes it more fun for us to cheer on “our team,” heh heh, though eventually we’ll encourage a more nuanced view.)
In celebration of the good old days, here we are voting as a family in 2008:
8-month-old Mikko at his first caucus
14-month-old Mikko at his first primary
17-month-old Mikko at his first presidential election
