My friend Art tells me the main reason he votes is so he can see his neighbors, who volunteer at the booth. That’s one of the best reasons I’ve got to do it, too. My voting booth is right up the street at the Church of the Advocate. The big race this year was between who is going to represent the Democratic Party in November’s Pennsylvania gubernatorial race. Tom Wolf won. I’m not sure it really matters. There could be marginal differences that affect how much fracking companies get taxed, or how quickly we sell our souls to corporations who want to run our public schools, or even whether the state gets out of the liquor business, but I’m not sure we are really going to get anywhere among those who really need it with our governor.
