I’m so proud of my son, he just voted today for the first time!
While the election is still going on as I write this, I’m so pleased to see that we’ve elected the most gender diverse congressional body in our country’s history. As of this moment, at least 90 women have been elected, which beats the previous record of 84. It’s a long way from half, but it’s a good step in the write direction!
Otherwise, it was a day of firsts. We elected our first Native American woman, first Muslim woman, first openly gay governor. . . here’s some more firsts: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/11/07/politics/historic-firsts-midterms/index.html
I’m so happy to see the government looking more an more like our actual population.
