The first president I voted for
Placeholder Image
Ronald Reagan was already in office by the time I turned 18 in 1983 and was eligible to vote. The next year, however, I cast my first vote for president: for Reagan to have a second term. By that election season, I had already switched from Syracuse University to Memphis State University (now the University of Memphis).
