When I was little I didn't pay much attention to elections. I couldn't vote so it didn't matter too much to me. I trusted my parents to vote in my interests.
As I reached high school voting started to come under my radar. I was in the student government and got a taste of what it was like to make important decisions for the student body. The Bush/Cheney election of 2000 rolled around and the Vice President came to our school to give a speech. As part of the student government I was selected to be a student ambassador and help with that event. I got to meet Dick Cheney in person. I found it quite interesting to meet politicians in person. When they aren't "on" or doing the performance necessary when talking to a huge crowd of people, they are just humans like you and me.
