Under Age Voting

 This Halloween, only Trick or Treaters — under the age of 18 — were invited to vote at our homemade polling station. 


Kids had three issues from which to choose.  Then they cast paper ballots into a cardboard voting machine. 


Here’s the tally: “Save Planet Earth” – 17 votes; “Protect the Animals” – 13 votes; and “Be Kind to Others” – 9 votes.  One of our neighbors, Max Potter, a student at Berkeley High, shared the thinking behind his decision: “If we don’t save the earth, nothing else matters.”  Apparently he convinced the group of students to contemplate what’s at stake!
