I decided to that I would ask people in my office if they were registered to vote, and if they were not registered to vote, that I would register them.
I did that today. My 31-year-old client had never been registered to vote. She felt embarrassed by that. I told her that it was okay, and that we could do that right then, and that she wouldn’t be charged for my time in doing that. I went to the very easy “ServiceArizona” website. I gleefully typed in her name, address, telephone number, driver’s license, and last four digits of her social security number. Then came the question about her party affiliation.
“What party do you want to belong to?
“I really don’t know much about politics. What party does Trump belong to?
“The Republican Party.”
“Okay, I’m a Republican.”
I dutifully did my job. I registered her to vote as a Republican. She is set up to vote by mail in all elections in the future. She is excited to finally be able to vote! She feels like a full adult, ready to take on the challenges of adulthood. She is looking forward to voting for Trump.
