Primary 2016

In the United States today we have something called, “Super Tuesday”.  Now I must tell you that I find the election process here extremely complicated, exciting, and important all at the same time.

I will be voting in my first federal election today as a US Citizen!  Today the states of Illinois (my state), Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio vote in what is known as the, “Primary” election.  The reason for “Super Tuesday” is that more than one state is voting today.  Other Primary elections will be held with only one state voting at a time.

For those of you who are in the US and have experience with voting in US elections, my haphazard way of understanding even a bit of the process will no doubt make you grin; however, for those of us ‘newbies’ or living outside the US, it is a rather daunting and intimidating process.
