Women on Voting
I wonder if we'll see more women voters this year. I certainly think we'll see more students of-age coming to the polls. If more people start thinking that their vote can actually make a difference, perhaps we'll up the numbers and hopefully we'll see more women taking a stand.
A recent USA Today article claims women have long tended to shift toward Republicans as they get married, have children, return to regular churchgoing and acquire wealth and mortgages. In 2000, 63% of single women voted for Gore, but only 48% of married women did. As the ranks of female business owners and homeowners grow, fewer may be inclined to lean to the political left.
This year however, 7 million more female voters than male are expected to head to the polls on Election Day. I hope they really look at the issues carefully and vote with heart and intelligence.
