Lucy learned about voting today in pre-school. During lunch she explained to us how it works:
"You read a paper, then it goes in a machine, in a box that is locked. If you have the key to open the box, you take the paper out and it tells you the winner. If it shows a lollipop then a lollipop wins!"
Then we asked what mommies and daddies vote on:
"What Cars character you like, your favorite pet, your favorite candy, what animals live in the sea, and what is on top of the beach that doesn't live in the water."
Sadly, her school is also reinforcing the two-party system. All of her “ballots” today only had two choices, like cat vs. dog.
