Scrap The Vote!

Guest Author - Michelle McVaney

This 2004 Presidential election has been one of the most exciting races ever!
Remember to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to record your
thoughts and impressions from the political uproar that has surrounded us!
You'll create a valuable historical record for yourself and generations to come.

Share your heart as you journal what the election means to you. I can only imagine how
Interesting it would be if I had documentation of how my grandma and grandpa felt about the elections of the past. What were the issues those days and most importantly what was their views on those issues.

The list below will help you get your journaling started. If you aren’t planning to complete this layout now, I recommend taking a few moments to journal your thoughts and feelings about this election right now while they are still fresh in your mind.

Journaling Starters:
*Why is voting important to you?
*Who was running for President
*Who did you vote for and why?
*What were the top issues this election? It has been said that one voter in five said
moral values were the most important issue driving their vote. What was your most
important issue this election?
*Include facts from the election including popular vote counts, electoral
vote counts per each candidate
*Did you watch the election returns? How did you feel while watching? Did you stay up into the wee hours of the morning to hear the winner announced?
*How did your spouse vote? Do you and your spouse discuss politics? Do you have the same views?
*Did your candidate win? How did that make you feel?
*Were your children interested in the election…what questions did they ask
*What do you know about the politcal views of your ancestors?
*Any local election info that you might want to include.
*Do you have any traditions for election day?

My family and I had the privilege of going to see President Bush when he came to campaign in
our town. I was able to get some great photos! I am excited to use those on my layout of this
election. If you do not have photos to go along with your journaling you might want to consider
using patriotic photos.

Photo Ideas:
*flag
*The presidential candidates
*Your polling place
*campaign signs
*watching the election returns

**If you didn’t think of taking pictures…you can always stage a photo now!

Maybe a layout about the election didn’t cross your mind at first! I hope that this article has inspired you to capture this historical information! What a great way to share your views with your future generations!
