This weekend a campaign canvasser came to visit.

She was not the first from this campaign, nor will she be the last. I politely told her that I had made a decision, would not share it with her and that I intended to vote on actual election day.

After she left I began to wonder why there is so much focus on the Presidential election. Why not more attention for the 4 of 5 congressional seats that are up for election? What about the several judges, district attorney and bonds we are also voting for this year? Why is it that we only seem to care about the President?

Of course, if my canvasser had been paying attention, she would have noticed the yard sign we put up in support of her candidate less than 2 hours before she came by.
