"On Nov. 4, Evan Delaney Rodgers, who turns 19 on Sunday, will cast an official ballot for the first time in her life.
In fulfilling this civic duty, the Carlsbad college student will be able to do something that's practically unheard of for a first-time voter: Vote for herself...":

"I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome when I was in elementary school, when very few girls were diagnosed with it. To me, it has never seemed like a "disease" or a "disorder". Speaking for myself, several of autism's challenges have been packaged with corresponding strengths. For example, being able to focus intently has helped me in everything and not being socially driven means I have spent much more time than the average teenager pursuing my own personal interests, education, and development":

You can't vote for yourself! That would undermine the whole democratic process.

I say good luck to her.

I hope she does well and can do good for her place (local area and country).

If she could win on just 1 vote I think the democratic process would allready have been doomed :)
