aren't I a big kid now?

So, I voted today. I'd like to say my vote counted, but who am I kidding? It didn't. I'm a lowly 17.52 years old and not able to vote in the actual election in less than a week, so I kid voted. Not only does kid voting not count towards who gets elected, but apparently being less than 6 months too young to vote in the general election also means I can't vote on all the issues. What is that? If I'm expected to be an informed voter in a year, I ought to be able to vote on everything now. I ought to have some practice being an informed voter... I have to say though that unfortunately I wasn't an informed voter this time around. I didn't know the issues for many of the lesser races... I'll have to work on that.
