Hello. My name is Joshua. I am registered to vote, with a listed affiliation to the Republican Party. I have voted only a few times since I became eligible. I typically find out about elections by the signs that get posted along the roads where I live. I prefer to limit the substance of the discussions I have about politics and my political leanings, as I don’t debate well and usually whatever discussion turns into a lecture about what a goof I am.

I am well behind where I should be in the political realm. I am only now starting to pay actual attention to who my representatives are, what their political interests and agendas are, and how that interacts with my interests, goals, and everyday life.
