Do you recall any outliers in your presidential voting history, including primaries? [View all]

I've voted for every Democratic nominee in the general election beginning with Walter Mondale in 1984, the year I turned 18. But the first vote I ever cast was in the 1984 Democratic primary. I didn't like Mondale and I thought Jesse Jackson was kind of cool at the time. I was just an 18 y/o white kid from the Bay Area that didn't know a thing about Jackson but didn't like Mondale. I cast my first ever vote for Jesse Jackson. Of course, I voted for Mondale in the general election.

It still makes me chuckle today.
