My first opportunity to vote in a “real” election was November, 1972 in St. Regis, Montana. Yes, I remember Richard Nixon winning big over George McGovern, but the memory that serves best is the flags. There were two U.S. flags flying at the entrance of the polling place, and as a young government teacher, all that I had prepared for became very real to me.
