“Absentee Ballots: Do you have the ballot you need?”
The subject line was innocent enough. As a college student living out of state, I didn’t know how to cast my vote, so I clicked on the link.
Instead of a helpful how-to, I found an email loaded with partisan propaganda. It wasn’t from a national political party. It wasn’t even from a random spammer. This was a message from dear old Dad telling me how to vote.
But if I’m old enough to vote, I’m old enough to come to my own conclusions about which candidate deserves my vote. And at this point, I’m not really sure either of them does.
