How have you been involved in politics?

This year, 2016 is a presidential election year.  There is a lot of news about the election.  This year's election is especially controversial.  There is even a third party candidate who just decided to run in August who may win the electoral votes in the state of Utah.  Many people are not wanting the two major candidates to win.  Elections can affect our lives.  Things may change with a new president or new congressmen or even new local officials.  Writing about the political events can be a part of your story.  

Have you ever ran for a political office or has a family member ran for office?  Did any one in your family serve in a political office?  Answering these questions can add a lot to your family's story.  Write about your feelings about the elections and your participation.  You might want to record who you voted for and why for your posterity.  Some time in the future your family may want to know what you thought about a certain election.
