Does your vote count?

Today is Election Day in America and I’m excited about it!  I have always taken my right to vote seriously, and with more proposals than ever on the ballot, as well as a tight presidential race, I feel like my vote will really count this year.  This got me wondering … how does my “vote” count at home?  Is my home a democracy or a dictatorship?  Fortunately, it is the former.  My husband and I talk about every major decision (and even lots of the little ones) so I feel that I have an equal voice in how we manage our children, our home, and our finances.  Marriage involves negotiation and compromise, but it always works out best when both parties have a say.  So be sure to have your say at the polls today and ask yourself, is my home a democracy?
