Taking Right to Vote Seriously!

We take our right to vote for granted here in the U.S., and it sees that fewer and fewer citizens go to the polls on Election Day.  I was Louisianan Secretary of State back in the eighties and spent a great deal of time urging voters to go to the polls, often with little success. Check lout the photos below.  People wait in a queue to cast their vote in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, landlocked in southern Africa. Millions of Zimbabweans voted peacefullythis week in their first election since the rapid fall last year of ruthless Robert Mugabe, who ruled for 37 years. Look at the lines to vote.  They take their right to vote seriously.
