Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
NOT a Happy Camper
I thought I had up until six weeks before the primary to change my party affiliation. Turns out it's twelve weeks -- three months! -- in Maryland, and of course I missed the deadline. So the first time in forever there's a candidate I actually want to vote for, I can't. Boo, hiss and boo-hoo.

But in VA you don't have to register as any particular party. AAMOF no state where I've been registered (AR, GA, AL, TX) has required party affiliation.
I think this is the first time I've ever planned on voting in a primary!
