Get My Vote: Liz's First Time

Get My Vote upload banner

Today I was poking around the Get My Vote website and found a really interesting answer to Talk of the Nation's favorite related question: When was the first time you became political?* Liz Garmendia joined the military and signed on for its healthcare, and came to realize that, unlike her father, she saw merit in universal health coverage... and that led her to vote in this year's primary, her first vote ever cast. So how'd she vote? Go to her commentary on Get My Vote and find out, then submit your story!

*We want your answers to this question for our Thursday show! So head on over to Get My Vote and tell us: When was the first time you became political? Maybe we'll feature your story!
