November 4: D'arby voted!
D'arby Harlow James, who turned 18 in September, votes for the first time at Encinal High School in Alameda, Calif.
D'arby has practiced her voting skills for almost two decades: she has accompanied me to the polls since she could sit up, and has helped me fill out countless ballots. She served as a poll worker during February's primaries. Today, she voted for Obama, yes on 2, no on 4, and no on 8.
