    I remember how exciting that year’s election was because Ross Perot was running and he was giving the two major parties a run for their money. If I remember correctly, I think I put my vote in for him that year!

  2. houseofestrogen says:

    Oh dear… is it terrible that I don’t remember? Let’s see… I would have turned 18 in 1989, so my first presidential vote would have been in 1992. Oh, I do remember! One of the debates was held at my college! Very cool! I remember all the satellite trucks all over. I voted Clinton.

  3. Nadine says:

    I first voted in 1996. I had to do an absentee ballot since I was at college out of state at the time.

    A Republican then and a Republican now. . . I voted for Reagan during his first run for President.

  5. Brooke says:

    My first time voting for a presidential election was the year the first Bush won. I SO didn’t vote for him. It was pretty depressing, but in retrospect, nowhere near as depressing as elections since.

  6. Rebekah says:

    It was 1992 and I was a freshman in college; I was so excited that my first opportunity to vote was going to be in a Presidential Election. I threw out my absentee ballot and instead rode the bus home from school so I could cast my ballot at the polls. It took me 4 hours on the bus, but it was worth every minute so I could vote for Bill!

  7. Mona says:

    mine was also an absentee ballot for clinton in 1996!

  8. Ruby (Mouth) says:

    My very first election was in 1996 and I voted for Doyle. As you can tell, he lost and Clinton won. Still I continue to vote. You can’t complain if you don’t vote.

    yet another absentee vote for Clinton in 96!

  10. Andrea says:

    Im a young one so my first voting election was the Kerry/Bush election, I had just missed Gore/Bush election.

  11. Lori says:

    Funny! My first voting experience was filling out an absentee ballot in college in 1992, for a young Bill Clinton! I am not kidding! Weird!

  12. CPTmom says:

    My first attempt at voting – I showed up all ready to vote…but had not re-registered when I moved the year before. Dummy.

  13. Bethany says:

    I voted in the last election and my parents were calling me while i was waiting in line telling me to “do the right thing”. it was hilarious.

  14. Anonymous says:

    I voted for George Bush in 1988. I was super happy to be able to vote…and I am still happy to be able to vote:)

    I believe my first time voting was during the Clinton/Bush election..after having kids I can’t remember stuff too well! Maybe the necklace would help me remember to vote this year 🙂

  16. HollowSquirrel says:

    oooh mine was the 1992 Clinton election, too, via absentee ballot!

  17. Seriously Mama says:

    1992 – Freshman in college – rode the Greyhound home so I could vote with my dad for Bill Clinton. I’ll neve forget how impowered I felt that afternoon.

  18. Anonymous says:

    I regret to admit that I am not sure if I filled out my absentee ballot when in college (my first opportunity to vote in a presidential election would have been the 1996 race).

    However, my first very clear recollection of voting in a Presidential election was Gore-Bush 2000. I voted for Al. How I loved/love him. I went to bed happily believing he won. How wrong I was. I have higher hopes this year.

  19. shannon says:

    My first vivid memory of an election was in elementary school- Reagan/Carter. I remember we voted in class- cast our ballots in a box and “officials” counted them and posted the winner on the chalk board. Carter won, even though it was and is a red state. I voted for Reagan, presumably because my Dad probably did.

    My first real election that I dove in and did some homework, watched debates, talked to friends about was… Clinton/Bush. I voted for Perot.

    I LOVE this necklace! This shop is marked as a favorite at my etsy! I hope I win!

  20. windycindy says:

    Hello! The first time I was able to vote was in 1976. It was the then relatively unknown Jimmy Carter against Gerald Ford. I remember how voting made me feel like a valued member of society. Many thanks, Cindi

  21. LadyBug-Kellie says:

    I missed out on George Bush’s first term (wasnt quite 18!) but I was there for the second one. And I voted for Kerry lol!!!! But of course he didn’t win. I am hoping my pick win’s this time though. Seriously hoping.

  22. Sandy says:

    I voted for Reagan

  23. Gina says:

    My first vote was my senior year of high school. It was Bush v Gore 2000. I was so excited and proud to cast my ballot. It is wonderful to be a part of the political process, even if your candidate doesn’t win.

  24. Wehaf says:

    My first presidential vote was in 2000; I voted for Bush, mostly through ignorance. I’m now a proud liberal and looking forward to voting for Obama!

  25. Seeryus Mama says:

    I’ve been passionate about voting since before I was able to. In high school I followed Clinton…he was my favorite. However, I was still to young to vote. I voted for Gore in 2000. Democrat, proud and strong!

  26. PS says:

    I remember very clearly voting for Gore in 2000. (But I remember hating Tipper because she was so for censoring music…)

  27. Heather says:

    I’m from Canada and we have an election coming up too. My first vote I wasn’t that educated, but now that I am a few years older I have found more interest and I am sure that I make an educated vote that I can feel good about!

  28. Alice H says:

    My first vote was in 1996 – I really remember it too. So exciting. Thanks for the chance, its a great necklace and a great reminder!

  29. Tammy says:

    1992. I was living in the dorms at Purdue University. What a great place to be to hear students opinions on who they were voting for. I voted for Bill Clinton. No question for me!

  30. M's Mommy says:

    My first vote was also Bill Clinton in 1992. So exciting when he won! I have great memories of going with my parents to the voting booth when I was a little kid – it was a great civics lesson. Voting is so important – it’s the greatest thing we can do as Americans. I’d love to win this piece!

  31. Sara says:

    I love this necklace! My first presidential vote was for Bill Clinton in 1996.

  32. Abby says:

    I remember being very excited and nervous going into my little booth and pulling the curtain shut. I took it very seriously (as everyone should) I read every line to make sure I was voting the way I wanted to. The poor people behind me had to wait forever 😉

  33. Naomi says:

    My birthday is usually on election day so I voted in ’88 for the first time. I try to be more informed these days!

  34. ignoramoose says:

    My first presidential vote was in 2004…a big one, yeah? And I voted for someone who ended up losing. 🙁

  35. mommyjen99 says:

    1992 was my first presedential election. I felt so grown up…hehe

  36. hudson umma says:

    man, you really gotta stop posting all these cute stuff! this mama is gonna go broke! =) anyway, i only started voting the last election but vowed to continue to do so as my duty!

  37. Just.Me says:

    It was 1984 and I voted for President Ronald Reagan. I was also a member of Youth for Reagan at my college. Go Ronnie

  38. apple says:

    First vote was in 1996. I forgot who I voted, really.

  39. Kimberly B. says:

    It must have been ’88, Bush v. Dukakis. I voted for Paul Simon, because Dukakis wasn’t liberal enough for me. Ah, the idealism of youth!

  40. anne vally says:

    It was 1988, and I am more than a little ashamed to admit I voted for George Bush. I was utterly thrilled to be voting, but not nearly as wise as I might have been with the privilege!

  41. jeske_posse says:

    Let’s see, the first election that I voted…I voted for Kerry. I was so crushed that the candidate I voted for didn’t win. I just hope and pray that my candidate will win this time, so we don’t end up on a “bridge to nowhere”. LOL

  42. janetfaye says:

    I think the first time I voted it was for Jimmy Carter.

  43. Shannon says:

    The first time I voted was the Bush/Gore Election!

  44. Jennae @ Green Your Decor says:

    I wasn’t old enough to vote when I was in college (I was only 17) when Bush won his first term. Imagine my disappointment 🙁 So voting for Kerry in ’04 was a must for me. Not necessarily my first pick for President, but my feelings then were anyone is better than Bush. Can’t wait to vote this year! In fact, early voting has already started in my state, so I’m going to cast my ballot this week.

  45. Jennae @ Green Your Decor says:

    Oh, and my email is jennae {at} greenyourdecor {dot} com

  46. Kristen says:

    Mine was for Bill Clinton in ’92. 🙂

  47. mannequin says:

    Politics were of no concern to me until 96; when I registered. Thing is, I am still uninterested in politics. I’m interested in who is the best person to lead our children into a better life.

  48. PowerSweepstaking says:

    first time was for Reagan

  49. says:

    This is my VERY FIRST YEAR being able to vote! I am SOOOOOO excited! And wearing this necklace to the polls would definatley look good! 😉

  50. Kerrie says:

    This is my first year being able to vote! It’s exciting…no one else in my family votes or cares about voting really. I’ve tried to get them to, but it’s no use…so I feel like it’s up to me to speak on behalf of my family! =) And I’m up to the challenge.

  51. rayble99 says:

    The first time I officially voted was in the 1992 election. But I vividly remember “voting” in Kindergarten in 1976. We got to go into refrigerator box voting booths and put a penny in the can for the candidate who was our pick. In his picture, cut out from a magazine, Jimmy Carter had a big smile on his face, so he got my penny.

  52. Ginny says:

    The first year I was able to vote was in 1996. I hate to admit it but I did not vote. I was so excited all through high school that my birthday fell on a presidential election year. I am super shy though & I totally chickened out of voting. I was afraid I wouldn't know what to do (in the booth). The first year I did get up the guts to vote was 2004, I couldn't stand another year of Bush. It of course was very easy, we had paper ballots. I thought we had those machines, that was what I was afraid off, so silly!

    I'm so glad to see all the campaigns aimed at young voters now, I think it really helps!

  53. Sonya says:

    it was 1988 and I voted for Bush.

  54. kathryn313 says:

    I wanted Ross Perot to win back in 92 I think..
    Man we sure can use him today..
    But very glad Clinton won that year instead.
    Very exciting then..
    Very scary now….

  55. Ashley M. says:

    My first presidential vote was the 2000 Election–I voted for Al Gore. I live in Florida and I literally cried for days when it was finally “decided” that FL would go to Bush. It was hugely disappointing, but it’s one of the things that makes me keep voting, because one vote really DOES count.

  56. Anonymous says:

    This will be my first U.S. presidential election and I’m so excited. I’m from abroad and have always voted at home. This necklace is wonderful. It makes me think of Emile Pankhurst and how life has changed. If I win it, I promise to wear it every day and maybe inspire others to vote!

  57. Rockin' Mama says:

    I first voted for Bush when I was in college!
