George Washington (aka Levi) wants to remind the public of the importance of voting.

Five fun facts about Washington’s own election:

  1. Washington spent $0 dollars campaigning.
  2. Washington made no public appearances to support his election.
  3. Washington reportedly considered not accepting the Presidency if elected.
  4. Washington was the only President to receive every electoral vote not once, but twice.
  5. James Madison wrote Washington’s inaugural address.  The first draft was 70 pages long.  Thankfully, Madison shortened the final version.

Times have changed, but the importance of voting hasn’t!  GO VOTE!
