Turning 40—The One Damn Time I Failed To Vote In 22 Years As Eligible Voter

This is part of a Texas Liberal series of reminisces as I turn 40 this week

Just once in my life have I failed to vote. It was some type of hospital bond issue maybe 20 years ago in Hamilton County, Ohio. It was the only issue on a special election ballot. That is at least how I recall it.I did not give the matter much thought until a professor criticized the low voter turnout for the issue during a class on Canadian politics I was taking. 

Since that day in class, I have often thought about my perfect voting record for primaries, special elections and general elections—Perfect except for one damn vote.
