Although I've voted in almost 10 Presidential elections, my vote has never counted when I lived in El Paso County. I would like to contribute to fairer representation.

It's important to understand various points of view, be a good listener. After writing down what I've heard I'd gather information, and present facts for the pros and cons of a subject.
